Re: Berlin Jewish Memorial - actually it looks like…

These photos are taken at the Berlin Jewish Memorial. It's an extraordinary place, 5 acres of varying concrete blocks which according to architect Peter Eisenman "represent a supposedly ordered system that has lost touch with human reason".

As a piece of art that humans can interact with, it's breathtaking. As a memorial to the Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe, it's chilling.

Eisenman has done a great job -- building a model of any major city today, a memorial to the idiocy of the richer end of humankind.

As a memorial to the murdered Jews of Europe -- well, I see nothing in it.

Cheers, geoff
