Homework Answer on The Holocaust Memorial
The holocaust memorial is conducted to remember the victims of holocaust of the Jewish descent. The monument was designed by Buro Happold (engineer) and Peter Eisenman (architect). It leaves out other victims that suffered as a result of the Nazi war. On the other hand, the gay/lesbian memorial was inaugurated in remembrance of victims of National Socialism. A monument was built at cologne, a place believed to be dominated by the gay community in German.
Several memorial monuments dedicated to the victims of socialism have been elected (Dunn, 2014). They include the Frankfurt angel memorial in Frankfurt am Main, monument in Berlin, plaques in Mauthausen and Neuenamme.Underground place of information is a good idea because it preserves the names of 500,000 soviet Jews murdered by national socialists. It has four rooms that include the information about the victims’ families, names, individual families and letters.
The train transported people to the death camps. The reason behind this is to preserve the memories of the victims who perished during holocaust.Having left out the old age, Jews and other groups in the memorial, create discrimination amongst the victims. Thus, the memorial name should be changed to Nazi memorial to incorporate all the groups (A&E Television Networks, 2015).
