The Monument to the Murdered Jews of Europe contains 2,700 concrete slabs of varying heights with no names or dates. The slabs are laid out on a 4.7-acre site near the Brandenburg Gate in Berlin, Germany. After the memorial was unveiled in 2005, architect Peter Eisenman said he had spoken to Holocaust survivors, who had got off the trains at Auschwitz with a sense of disorientation and loss. The monument was designed to offer visitors a chance to feel these emotions themselves. H/t: Press Association.
