ACT 2: VOID



THE LIBESKIND BUILDING

‘Between the Lines’ because for me it is about two lines of thinking, organization, and relationship.” —Daniel Libeskind. The visible twisted zig-zag line throughout the space and the spatial experience shapes the axes of exile, the Holocaust and continuity.

THE AXES ON THE  LOWER  LEVEL

Three axes cross on the lower level of the Libeskind building, symbolizing three historical developments of Jewish life in Germany: the Axis of Exile, the Axis of the Holocaust, and the Axis of Continuity, which leads to a steep staircase. 
THE VOID

Memory void - this represent the absence of Jews from German society. The installation of 10000 innocent faces of Jews on the ground called `Fallen leaves’. The faces symbolize those lost during the Holocaust as well as the victims of war and violence in general. The installation was designed by Israeli artist Menashe Kadisman.
