Walking on the ‘Fallen Leaves’ at the Jewish Museum Berlin

Just before Naomi uploads the “blog reflection” of this week’s session, let me squeeze here a video clip I shot with my mobile phone at the Jewish Museum Berlin, walking on the ‘Fallen Leaves’ in the Memory Void (and yes, I know I am not Steven Spielberg!).

The text panel says:

“Menashe Kadishman’s installation “Shalechet” is first a memorial to the Holocaust. But he reaches beyond this and dedicates it to all innocent victims of violence and war. He requests that visitors walk upon the work. The title “Fallen Leaves” raises suggestions both of negative predestination and of hope for new life in the coming spring”
