With all the neo-fascist stuff going on in the U.S., I've been thinking about our visit to Berlin last Fall. That city has layers of tragic history ranging from Nazi HQ to The U.S.S.R. trauma during the Cold War. One of the most striking monuments in the city is the Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe. Designed by Peter Eisenman (architect) and Buri Happold (engineer), the rectangular slabs hold the names of 3 million Jewish Holocaust victims. We hung out across the way eating currywürst and pondering the installation. Electronic music blared out of the café and our hosts brought us complimentary Jäger shots as it was "happy hour". The entire experience was surreal. After getting a little tipsy, we meandered through the catacomb-like maze, deeply thinking about what it represents. Picnicking couples and cig smoking teens could be seen climbing around on the slabs... tour groups would pass by. The park is very welcoming and interacting is condoned. It felt like we were building kinship with the deceased; while also paying homage. Walking through the alleys between the blocks was disorienting- and really hit home. The grid of 2711 rectangular concrete blocks stands on the square that was once Hitler's administrative center. It was the home of the chancellery building... and is also close to the bunker where Hitler killed himself. THIS is a true monument that brings the general populace to interact - and feel the magnitude of the deaths that were perpetrated by the Nazi regime. #neverforget #nazissuck #germany #deutschland #backpacking #travel #historicalsites #jewishmemorial #resisthate #berlinlove #WWII

Well. Done. Осталось только выучить немецкий и переехать жить в Кройцберг. Берлин - любовь. Как с первого, так и со второго раза. #berlin #travelmore #eastsidegallery #thekiss #jewishmemorial #checkpointcharlie #berlinwall #kreuzberg

It's sad to have this memorial but it is an amazing one.
