Located at Cora-Berliner-Straße, near the Brandenburg Gate and Reichstag, the Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe covers 19,000 square metres and features some 2,711 stelae - concrete blocks ranging in height from 20cm to 4.7m. Architect Professor Peter Eisenmann and his team consulted representatives from concrete production firms based in Berlin and Karlsruhe before going ahead with the enormous project. The blocks were subsequently produced using reinforced steel framework and are covered with a substance known as Protectosil, a product designed to withstand both the elements, and graffiti. The memorial was inaugurated sixty years after the end of WWII, on 10th May 2005, and opened to the public two days later. Pictured below are several views recently taken at the site.
