Holocaust Memorial the tunnel

Interrupting this pilgrimage is an Eternal Light and an enclosed shrine-like space leading to a narrow passage. The decreasing ceiling height of the tunnel creates the feeling of a diminished self, while the names of the most infamous death camps stare out of the two narrowing walls at the visitor.

The sight that awaits the sojourner stuns the eye. A large circular plaza paved in pink-hued Jerusalem stone is surrounded by a high solid wall lined with shining black granite. The multiple reflections in the many granite panels mirror the central object of the plaza - a 42-foot-high bronze sculpture, designed by Kenneth Treister and cast in Mexico City by Fundición Artística. The sculpture depicts close to one hundred figures in different family groupings. They cry out with anguish, they tell of pain, of despair, of life and of death in a man-made hell. Topping the sculpture is a hand evolving from an arm bearing the ultimate mark of man's dehumanization, a number which became man's identification, cancelling his real human identity.

More About USA

The United States is one of the most diverse countries on earth, jam packed full of amazing sights from St. Patrick's cathedral in New York to Mount Hollywood California.The Northeast region is where it all started. Thirteen British colonies fought the American Revolution from here and won their independence in the first successful colonial rebellion in history. Take a look at these rolling hills carpeted with foliage along the Hudson river here, north of New York City.The American south is known for its polite people and slow pace of life. Probably they move slowly because it's so hot. Southerners tend not to trust people from "up north" because they talk too fast. Here's a cemetery in Georgia where you can find graves of soldiers from the Civil War.The West Coast is sort of like another country that exists to make the east coast jealous. California is full of nothing but grizzly old miners digging for gold, a few gangster rappers, and then actors. That is to say, the West Coast functions as the imagination of the US, like a weird little brother who teases everybody then gets famous for making freaky art.The central part of the country is flat farmland all the way over to the Rocky Mountains. Up in the northwest corner you can find creative people in places like Portland and Seattle, along with awesome snowboarding and good beer. Text by Steve Smith.
