Photographer's Note

I know there are too many pictures of this memorial, but I can't help but post this photo. This is the Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe. The large cement blocks are meant to remind us of grave stones for all those killed during WWII. But there is a grid work of paths that run between all the blocks. The grid work rises and falls, providing interesting view points to all of those who come in. Here is another view I've posted in a WS.

The best part of this memorial is that one cannot help but play hide and go seek in between the blocks. So while this is a very sad monument, one can't help but enjoy life in it. Here is a teacher, fleeing from his students. It is a place where one can feel life rising out of death.
