Today I posted a review of the novel, The Garden of Evening Mists. This story deals with war and how brutal it can be. One of the people who commented said this about war. The “important thing is how the remnants are dealt with. Something must be learned – something positive must be built – then maybe some day wars will be a choice set aside.”
I couldn’t agree more. For today’s photo I decided to show a picture of the Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe, located in Berlin, Germany. This memorial is Germany’s national holocaust memorial. The grey steles vary in size and they represent the six million people killed by the Nazis in concentration camps between the years 1933 and 1945.
Peter Eisenman, the architect, wanted to create a confusing atmosphere. At first glance it looks ordered, but upon further inspection the order doesn’t make sense.
