Beautiful. Interesting use of the holocaust memorial in the foreground, with the tower in the back.

The Holocaust Memorial. Berlin, Germany. - The memorial is in two parts. The stelae field above the ground and an information center detailing the personal lives of the murdered jews under ground. It is absolutely worth visiting the under ground museum. Entry is free but it is recommended to pay 4 Euros for the audio guide. There is a LOT of information and one can completely sink into stories of people and the way normal lives were disrupted and destroyed in a single day. #Berlin
