Holocaust Memorial

2-1

1-1

The Holocaust Memorial is, as the name indicates, a memorial dedicated to the 6 million Jews killed during the Nazi regime.
– It is the second time I visit the Memorial to the murdered Jews in Europe. -Said Penelope.
– It is also the second time I visit Berlin and spend at the Memorial. The first time was at the end of may, the month of the inauguration of the monument, on 10 May 2005. – Noted Anna.


– Yes. The inauguration date was part of the celebrations of 60 years of the end of World War II, and two days later it was opened to the public.
Penelope and Anna were facing the blocks and in silence. After a few minutes, they looked at each other.
– It’s impossible to live indifferent to the history and the weight that feels right now.
– I don’t have words. – Replied Penelope, while I looked around.
– People were stopping, playing between the block and looking up.
After a short discussion between the friends, there was again a moment of silence in honour of all people.

O Memorial do Holocausto é, como o nome já indica, um memorial dedicado aos seis milhões de judeus mortos durante o regime nazista.
– É a segunda vez que visito o Memorial aos Judeus Mortos na Europa. – Disse Penélope.
– Também é a segunda vez que visito Berlim e que passo no Memorial. A primeira vez, foi no fim de Maio, no mês da inauguração do monumento, em 10 de Maio de 2005. – Comentou Anna.
– Sim. A data de inauguração fazia parte das celebrações dos 60 anos do fim da Segunda Guerra Mundial, e dois dias depois foi aberto ao público.
Penélope e Anna ficaram de frente para os blocos e em silêncio. Passado alguns minutos olharam uma para a outra…
– É impossível ficar indiferente à história e ao peso que se sente neste momento.
– Eu não tenho palavras. – Respondeu Penélope, enquanto olhava em volta.
– As pessoas paravam, tocavam no bloco e olhavam para cima…
Depois de uma curta conversa entre as amigas, fez-se novamente um momento de silêncio em homenagem a todas as pessoas.

  1. I was very impressed by the size of the memorial when I was there. It can’t make up for the scale of the tragedy, but the Berliners’ decision to dedicate a whole square to the memorial was a wise one.
