Transcript of Holocaust Memorials
How we have remembered. . .
This memorial can be found in Vienna, Austria
The building is made to look like library shelves full of books- it is known as the Nameless Library. This symbolizes the people who died without recognition or name.
The Memorial to the Murdered Jews- found in Berlin, Germany
These structures are supposed to make the visitor feel confused. The maze-like structure provides an experience that would symbolically represent the way the holocaust was beyond all human reason.
The Sculpture of Love and Anguish
This hand is meant to symbolize the hand of a Jewish prisoner- even marked with a prisoner number. The figures at the base of the arm are human bodies in anguish representing the terror of the Holocaust.
This shoe memorial can be found in Budapest, Hungary
These shoes symbolize the individuals who were thrown into the river as part of the torment during the Holocaust
Mémorial des Martyrs de la Déportation
This memorial is meant to make the visitor feel claustrophobic. The inscription on the plaque in the floor reads "They descended into the mouth of the earth and they did not return."
The room symbolizes the death chamber of all the lost French souls during the Holocaust.
Weeping Williows- found in Budapest, Hungary
This memorial signifies the 400,000 Hungarian Jews who were killed in the Holocaust. The names of the victims can be found on the leaves of the tree.
Now it's your turn.
As you think about your project, consider how you can use symbolism to enhance the meaning of your presentation. Remember everyone will do a short 2-3 minute speech with your project- so you have time to explain your symbolism and demonstrate how your project is a fitting memorial to always remember...
"Those who cannot remember the
past are condemned
to repeat it.”
--Philosopher George Santayana
