Between the Lines--Names from the Memory Book of Berlin

In the exhibit space, a portion of the "Gedenkbuch (Memorial Book)" inscribed with the names of the exterminated Jews has been reproduced on the walls and floor.

Libeskind's representative work, a concrete architectural expression of the tragedy for humankind that was the Holocaust. Its complex linear configuration is determined by the formless form of the Void [cutting through its central axis]. The Void is what appears between the lines, indicative not of nihilism, oblivion, and despair−but of hope for the future of humanity.
