Free Art exhibit open year round.
At the risk of sounding dramatic, we make a visit to this memorial everytime we have out of town guests. Each time I am moved in a different way by it, not only by things I seem to see for the first time but by the emotion and awe it invokes in our guests eyes.
Early evening is our favorite time to visit, just as sun is setting and lights are coming up. Breathing in the jasmine scented air as you wonder the Arbour of History around the large water pond and into the Dome of contemplation.
As you walk through "The lonely Path" and up to the main sculpture, take special note of the child begging with outstretched arms, crying as you near it. Seemingly in pain and fear...
Stop and look at the various sculptures around and up the main sculpture, each unique and with it's own set of expression.
Take note of that child again, as you leave, seeming to turn your back on it's pain as the world did at one time.
Finally, take time to read the names on the many slates adorning the corridor and look at the
walls pictures from the Holocaust.
Definetely worth visiting and admiring. One of the best renditions of art depicting the Holocaust.
Near the Art Deco district you will find the Holocaust memorial. The memorial was a pretty stunning sight as you can see from the picture. We just walked around in silence and looked at all the individual faces and bodies that form the base of the gigantic arm.
Go and see the Holocaust Memorial!
As a German I really have to admit that while visiting the memorial I was thinking about the debate that was still going on in Germany about an adquate Holocaust Memorial for Berlin.
This shows the big grief in one big hand made of a many man and women that where murdered in the Holocaust and of those who could fled the horror.
Time stands still.
