The Holocaust Memorial is one of the most important memorials to the murdered Jews of Europe, mainly for its location, between the Brandenburg Gate and Potsdamer Platz in the heart of Berlin. The Memorial consists of the Field of Stelae, designed by Peter Eisenman, and the subterranean Information Centre. It is free. The Field of Stelae contains 2,700 concrete slabs (stelae) that are arranged in a grid pattern, and visitors can walk through them. While walking through, the feeling is of a graveyard, of loss and suffocation, and it captures the tragedy of the holocaust. Underneath the memorial site, an information center contains several rooms—rooms of names, families who were killed, sites of concentration camps, and even voices of survivals. This site is a must for every human being, for the history of the world.
