Read the detailed information panels, look at the stones with the names of the awful camps, think about society’s modern day prejudice against gypsies and ‘the other’ and reflect.

It is a simple but powerful memorial. Take the time to visit and read the information by it. It is near the Brandenburg Gate.

This is a very touching memorial, one that is placed in the park between the Reichstag and Brandenburg gate. The way it is positioned, makes you walk around and reflect on what has happened. The stories on the wall, the reflective pond and peaceful location...More

A memorial to the Sinti and Roma peoples who were also marked for "cleansing". A beautiful place with a year by year description of Stare policies against the people.

The memorial seems to mirror the theme of ponds particularly at Auschwitz where it is know that thousands of the victims of the Holocaust were poured. It is a place of contemplation on a walk between the Brandenburg and the beautifully refurbished Deutscher Bundestag.

It would be fairly easy to wander through the Tiergarten between The Reichstag and Brandenburg Gate and not notice this simple but moving memorial. The site was extremely peaceful. Look for the poem around the pool and the engravings on some of the stones. I...More

We stumbled on this on our way to the Brandenberg Gate. The pond monument itself isn't much to look at however the timeline of events on the wall outside gives you the story of how it all unfolded and meaning to the monument. Worth stopping...More
