“Good memorial”
Review of Holocaust Memorial

Holocaust Memorial
Reviewed 28 June 2017 via mobile

Unlike to Japanese who still deny their cruelty during the WWII, this serves as a reminder that war is always cruel.

I agree while it is well designed perhaps more can be added to it perhaps an underground museum below this site to provide more information.

Perhaps its hard to forgive and forget the past like losing my grand father during the Japanese occupation of SEA, takes the courage to built something like this. I salute the decision.

My wife an I came across this memorial unexpectedly. There is a portion in English as well as German. Very sad part of Germany's history. Its good to see some recognition of that, even if the sign lays the blame solely on the "Nationalist, Socialist party" and leaves no mention of Germany's complicity.

its easy to walk past, but harder to stop and read what's written on this moving monument. A few walls, tranversed by a road in between, but this is where stood of the largest and important synagogues in Germany. Come the War and it's burnt to the ground, artefacts destroyed, soiled or simply stolen. What followed was even more barbaric. Local inhabitants murdered by rioters, whole families rounded up and put on trains to be shipped like cattle to Auscwich, Sorbor, Buchenwald and the rest. How do I know this? Because the names of the local Jewish Community killed this way are inscribed on the stones of the walls. It's a simple, yet poignant memorial. A must see in Weisebaden, remembering the past informs the future.

The Holocaust Memorial was very nice but was very little to see. The system that provides sound so we could hear something about the memorial was not working. I just read what was on the wall. I didn't see any names or stories of those that lost their lives. I could have been so much more.

Is a small memorial, not much to see it but still nice to honor the victims. It is just a wall where a synagogue used to be, very easy access from the city center.
