A brief video tour of the memorial to the murdered Jews of Europe at Berlin - the site is covered with 2,711 concrete slabs or "stelae", one for each page of the Talmud arranged in a grid pattern on a sloping field. According to project text, the stelae are designed to produce an uneasy, confusing atmosphere, and the whole sculpture aims to represent a supposedly ordered system that has lost touch with human reason.
The last images of the video are from the Jewish Museum in Berlin and show the installation called 'Schalechet - Fallen leaves' - in the Memory Void, one of the empty spaces of the museum. Over 10,000 open-mouthed faces coarsely cut from heavy, circular iron plates cover the floor.
The voices on the video are mainly taken from the Voices of the Holocaust: voices.iit.edu/ - a collection of interviews with Holocaust survivors and other displaced persons conducted by Dr. David P. Boder in Europe in 1946.
The main music is "El moleh rahamin" a Jewish prayer for the dead of Auschwitz sung by Auschwitz survivor Shlomo Katz.
