Favorite part of Berlin was getting to travel with good friends. Most impressive site was the Holocaust Memorial. Designer Peter Eisenman describes the memorial as producing an uneasy, confusing atmosphere aiming to represent a supposedly ordered system that has lost touch with humanity. It is immense, breathtaking and disorienting.
One of the things I most over about it though was that even within the somber reality of what it is memorializing there was still an element of play about it with people weaving in and out of the stelea and climbing over it as well. There was something about the play in and amongst the somber remembrance which added life to the monument.
