This memorial is located outside the city, about 10 km to the north-west in the so-called Grrossen Ettersberg.
This monument was dedicated in 1958 to honor the thousands of people who were the prisoners of this concentration camp.
There were 250,000 prisoners in Buchenwald during the war, among them 56,000 were murdered here.
There is also Ernst Thälmann Museum there.
Ernst Thaelmann was the workers' leader (not the Reich Councellor, regrettably) and he was very much revered by the German Communist government and by the Soviet Communists. There was and still is a street called after Ernst Thälmann almost in each Ukrainian and Russian city.
There is an inscription at the entrance to the museum. It reans,
Eternal glory to the great son of the German people, the leader of the German working class, Ernst Thälmann who was murdered at this place by fascists on August 18, 1944
Very impressive indeed.
We, a group of Soviet students whop studied German in this province for a month and had a weekend tour, followed the program of stay and, of course, for the sake of our upbringing, were taken to the place of former Buchenwald concentration camp that was a museum then.
I took this picture when our group was approaching the memorial.
You can see the famous gate with the inscription that the Nazis took as their motto, To each his own
It as very impressive to feel all the tragedy that took place here during the war.
You feel very sad how people all over the world could have allowed such atrocities and inhumane policies...
You can see sculptural composition depicting the dying prisonersof the concentration camp. . The Roman figures MCMXLV (1945) on the upper part of the tower.
The sculpture was made by F.Cremer.
The expressions of the prisoners' faces are different, but the idea is expressed in the old Soviet after-war slogan,
Nobody is forgotten, nothing is forgotten!
Its another version reads, We won't forget, we won't forgive!!

Many of Weimar's houses have some quotation painted at their walls. Here's one that I found particularly wise and interesting:
"Wenn Sie das Leben kennen, geben Sie mir doch bitte seine Anschrift!" (Jules Renard)
--> "If you know life, please give me its address" (Jules Renard)

Also known as the Herderkirche because of its proximity to the Markt (market square), this German baroque church was built between 1498-1500. The Herderkirche is the most important church historically in Weimar.
The church lies in the oldest part of town. A section of the church dates from 1250, and the square, predating the Markt, was the center of Weimar activity during the Middle Ages. Johann Gottfried Herder, philosopher and theologian served as pastor at this Lutheran church from 1744-1809 and his statue stands near the main entrance. Above the alter is the Redemption painting started by Lucas Cranach and completed by his son in 1555. To the left of the altar are two royal tombs. Johann Sebastian Bach was the organist between 1708-1717.
Entrance is free, open Mon-Fri 10:00 - 12:00 and 13:00 - 15:00.

Hahahahaha..... This is actually the Mathilde von Freytag-Loringhoven house!
Mathilde von Freytag-Loringhoven was an artist but she is most known for her animal psychology studies. Kurwenal, a yellow-red Dackelrüde, was a smart canine indeed. Not only did he learn to count from Mathilde von Freytag-Loringhoven, but even could speak using using a "numbered" alphabet (one bark for 'a', tw barks for 'b', and so forth).
