Without a doubt this is a strong memorial to a horrible time in history. It's hard for me to give these types of places 5 out of 5's because it's sad to me that they even need to be there. We visited this memorial during a walking tour so we did get some additional insight and thoughts behind the memorial. Which in my opinion was desperately needed. It was the designers intention to have no signs, information or provide details as to the design of the memorial. But (in my opinion) that added to some confusion. For example, while we were there a family had their two children playing on the blocks. Someone else got very upset with them and started yelling (quite inappropriately) that they were extremely disrespectful and didn't know how to raise their children. Thankfully our Tour Guide was able to intervene and the family had no idea it was a memorial to the murdered Jews. They thought it was an outdoor art exhibit and truly felt bad. But could something like that be avoided? I think more information and context needs to be provided. As much as it is such a powerful memorial I could make the argument that yelling at a family is also inappropriate at such a sacred place.
