Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe is a monument commemorating the extermination of European Jews during World War II. The monument occupies a square with an area of 19 thousand. m2, on which 2711 concrete rectangular blocks were erected, with a height from several dozen cm to almost 5 m. Each of the blocks corresponds to one side of the Talmud - the holy book of Judaism.
The monument, opened in 2005, also includes an underground museum, which houses a library, a lecture hall and an exhibition space. The whole is the work of the American architect Peter Eisenman, a leading representative of deconstructivism. The construction of the monument cost 54 million marks.
In 2008, a building resembling the concrete blocks of the monument was erected in the park in the vicinity of the Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe. Through a small hole you can watch a non-stop, silent short movie showing the kiss of two men. In this way, homosexuals persecuted in times of national socialism were commemorated.
