These figures outside the old Jewish cemetery in Berlin are a memorial to the Jews who died in concentration camps. This work was originally intended for display at another memorial site in Berlin, but finally the figures found their rightful place outside the old cemetery in Mitte. It is the work of the German artist Will Lammert.
The figures are roughly sculpted, but I think it gives them even more poignancy. I spent some time here looking into all of the faces. This was a tragic point in human history which I hope will never be repeated.
