Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe

Berlin's Holocaust Memorial turns out to be a maze. Once you walk into the grid of concrete blocks, you are lost because these slabs are much higher than your height in the central area of the memorial premise.

It seems none of the top surfaces and the side walls of these slabs is exactly in parallel. Each concrete slab has no frill on it. They are simply immaculate concrete blocks. Such simplicity and abstractness paradoxically tells visitors the graveness of what this memorial commemorates.
