I felt this memorial was designed by the Bernie Madoff of abstract art. Multiple concrete slabs. For those living now, I guess you can make something of it. But 50 or more years from now, I don't see how it could "teach" those who come...More

The centre of Berlin, Mitte is most famous for sights
like the Brandenburg Gate, Alexanderplatz, and Museum
Island. The central location makes this one of the
city's most expensive places to live. It is here the
oldest traces of the city can be found, and evidence
of some significant transformations, as well. The

No not a burial site. This is a memorial intended to provoke a reaction from each person who visits, There is no single explanation as to what they are intended to signify. Indeed the architect himself declined to comment... More
