Holocaust Pt3 - Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe

Situated in the centre of Berlin not far from the Brandenburg Gate and close to the site of Hitlers Bunker is a huge collection of stone blocks (2711) that act as a memorial to the Jewish victims of the Holocaust .It is a strange claustrophobic place ,you can only walk between the blocks in single file and as people pass you they only stay in sight for a split second . The memorial has been very controversial for many reasons ,it doesn't have any inscriptions or names on any of the concrete blocks ,the final cost ,where it is placed and the fact that the company that made the vandal proof coating also made the Zyklon B the gas used in the gas chambers .
