Review of Holocaust Memorial

Holocaust Memorial
Reviewed 3 October 2017

This is a very imposing brutalistic memorial built on the spot where Wiesbaden's synagogue stood before being burned down in Kristallnacht. Its walls are the Holocaust memorial bearing the names of all the Wiesbaden Jews who died in Auschwitz.
There's good audio information on one section.

A nice memorial to Wiesbaden Holocaust victims. Much like the Vietnam memorial in DC, it has a little information and a list of names on a wall.

I think it was build 2010, so it is one of the newer memorials. To my knowledge this is the first proper memorial for the Holocause in Wiesbaden.

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.
