construction of which was completed in December, 2004. The memorial is the subject of some controversy and being in it's presence gives you a chance to feel a sense of the conflict within German culture about the Holocaust. The 2,711 slabs made of concrete give you a sense of confusion, and the memorial is devoid of any literal symbols.

A controversial but impressive "Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe". Opened in the early 00s, it is an massive site filled with close to 3,000 concrete slabs on an undulating field - this creates an effect, when you walk between the slabs, of entering deeper and deeper into the memorial - until the slabs rise several meters above your head and you almost forget you're in the centre of a city. The museum is worth a visit, as well.

Across Ebertstraße, in the corner of the Tiergarten, is the Memorial to the Homosexuals persecuted under Nazism. It's an additional cement block with a video inside of a same-sex couple kissing. It alternates every few months between a gay male and lesbian couple.

I really love this monument!
It is not flashy or artsy or anything, but it makes you think, and that's important.
