Germany is full of memorials of the Holocaust.
Some subtle, some not so subtle.
We were standing over these before we noticed them. Three brass memorials in place of cobblestones on the sidewalk. At an entrance to a courtyard where apparently the Raphael’s lived.
All deported to Auschwitz.
After we found their memorials, we found several more while walking through Kreuzberg. A very multi-cultural, lively quarter of Berlin, chock full of clubs, bars and phenomenal food.
Definitely gives pause.
