Memorial to the Sinti and Roma victims of National Socialism

Denkmal für die im Nationalsozialismus ermordeten Sinti und Roma Europas

The monument is dedicated to the memory of about 500,000 people murdered in the Porajmos in 1933-1945 - the Nazi genocide of the European Sinti and Roma peoples. It was designed by Israeli sculptor Dani Karavan and was officially opened on 24 October 2012 after the final approval of the memorial by the Central Council of Sinti and Roma peoples in Germany and the Federal Government. The memorial consists of the broken slabs that make up a dark, circular pool of water at the centre of which there is a triangular stone. The stone is retractable and a fresh flower is placed upon it daily reminding about the tragic events and people that died. Around the memorial there are flat stones with the names of places where Nazi's crimes were committed.
