There are still many more pics coming, these were just the more recent ones.[smooth=id:11;]
This was by far the greatest piece of work I’ve ever seen regarding the holocaust. This actually marked the fourth large monument I’ve been to. My big regret here is at the time I’d taken pictures of this I hadn’t yet realized my camera was shooting like 1 for 10 in the dark. So I only got about 4 shots out of 40 (I am retty ticked off about that and will not let that happen next time I go 🙂 What my pics dont capture are the steam-filled glass towers etched with all the serial numbers of those that died in the camps. Highly recommended spot to check out.
Not sure exactly why but I’ve always had a big fascination with holocaust exhibits and art.
“Look at these towers, passerby, and try to imagine what they really mean – what they symbolize – what they evoke. They evoke an era of incommensurate darkness, an era in history when civilization lost its humanity and humanity its soul . . .”
“We must look at these towers of memory and say to ourselves, No one should ever deprive a human being of his or her right to dignity. No one should ever deprive anyone of his or her right to be a sovereign human being. No one should ever speak again about racial superiority… We cannot give evil another chance.”
– Elie Wiesel
We went all for a walk in their tourism and arts district and ended up in a really cool place to eat…
The Union Oyster House was an absolute trip! The guys downstairs made the evening easy smeasy as we walked in…Dave and Mike were our Oystah Mastahs. Dave let me shrug off the “when the hell are you giving us grandkids” discussion, and Mike the Kendo Mastah and I got to talk a little shop 😉 These guys were great and I will say this, screw waiting for a table if these guys are on the bar downstairs!
Funny guys and the service is right in front of ya!
