Photographer's Note

The idea for a Holocaust memorial predates the fall of the Berlin wall, though a plot was found only in 1993. The site, the size of four football pitches, is in the heart of Berlin in a deeply symbolic location between the Brandenburg Gate and the bunker in which Adolf Hitler died.


Its architect, Peter Eisenman, has described the 2,700 concrete pillars of differing heights, which form the centrepiece of his memorial, as a waving cornfield. The design also includes an underground information centre, which will include biographies and photos of the dead.
