Jewish memorial

We  will never truly know exactly how many Jewish people were victims of the Holocaust.

To me one of the most powerful memorial to date that I have visited is the Jewish memorial in Berlin. It has 2711 columns giving of a feeling of being in a vast maze, for us to feel the lost and confusion that victims had felt.

The memorial seemed so basic and simple – formation of simply just grey blocks ranging in height and sizes, but I believe in the phrase “simplicity is the true complexity.”

The day I was there it had just rained. The sky had started to clear, however raindrops hung onto the blocks like tear drops. Being at the memorial left me feeling a sense of heavy sadness that was hard to express. To know that millions of innocent lives were lost was heartbreaking. We shall not forget.
