Highlight

The Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe

The Holocaust Memorial is a memorial in Berlin to the Jewish victims of the Holocaust, designed by architect Peter Eisenman and engineer Buro Happold. It consists of a 19,000 m2 site covered with 2,711 concrete slabs, arranged in a grid pattern on a sloping field. The stelae are 2.38 m long, 0.95 m wide and vary in height from 0.2 to 4.7 m. They are organized in rows, 54 of them going north–south, and 87 heading east–west at right angles but set slightly askew. An attached underground “Place of Information” holds the names of approximately 3 million Jewish Holocaust victims.

Highlight

Neue Wache Memorial

A mother embraces her dead son, helpless and turned to stone in silent pain: the statue Mother with her Dead Son by Käthe Kollwitz. It stands in the Neue Wache, Germany’s central memorial for the victims of war and tyranny. This statue really touched me because of the fact that you don’t see so many victims of war but just one story within that many victims. It gets really close and personal and you really see the suffer.

Workshop

On Thursday we provided a workshop for German students
