The hotel in Berlin is on the Stresemann Strasse and about two blocks from the controversial Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe, sometimes referred to as the Holocaust Memorial. The memorial is on a 19,000 square meter (4.7 acre) site that is covered with 2,711 concrete slabs. There is one slab or "stelae" for each page of the Talmud. They are arranged in a grid pattern across a sloping field.
The idea is to feel vertigo or discomfort when viewing the stelae. It's a very uneasy feeling.
It's a very haunting memorial, but one of many in Berlin. Throughout the city are reminders of the war and the Nazi period. At times just walking down the street it can be quite eerie or surrealistic.
