  • It's supposed to represent a library with books placed spine backwards, the significance of which was lost on me. If I didn't know I would have thought it was something to do with the underground railway. It's astonishing that the opportunity to mark such a tragedy has been wasted.
  • A nice little square tucked away from a lot of things. The memorial was nice to visit and to remember the horrors of WW2 suffered at the hands of the Jewish people.
  • A quite, shine white and pleasant square today. Somewhere here it should by a delimitation line marked on the pavement. Discover it and if you are with a tour guide, ask him about the history of this sign. Many are crossing by did not knowing about but it has to have a meaning
  • An important memorial site in memory of Holocaust victims who perished in World War II
  • Just go there. We must remember.
