  • The memorial is a set of panels that are explaining the arrival of this Jewish philosopher in 1940 fleeing Nazism, from their arrival at Portbou railway station to the cemetery. The climax of the visit is an impressive monument erected on the promontory of the Portbou and next to the cemetery where he was buried to the philosopher. Reflect on the facts allow us to question many things. NO OS LO PERDAIS, the story of this man gives you much to think about.

  • It is impressive how this work of art can make you feel exactly the feelings that the author wanted to convey. Without a doubt, if you like the story, I think that it will not leave you indifferent

  • It is an impressive work where we can have the impression of falling into the sea. It is to see as well as the cemetery which is located next door.
