Creative Week 2019 in the Holocaust Memorial in Berlin!

Continuing our quest about the history of Europe during Creative Week, our team of interns, some of our members and the University of Opole’s Summer University students visited the Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe also known as the Holocaust Memorial. Walking in between the cold and uninviting slabs and descending into the depths of the memorial, the students were asked to describe their feelings and any thoughts aroused by being in the memorial. Some described the loneliness and panic that engulfed them as they went further into the memorial. They also pondered on the various interpretations of the monument and the significance of the memorial; what it means to the people of Berlin, Germany, Europe and the world at large.
