Etz Chaim

Holocaust Memorial aka Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe, Berlin, Germany.

Etz Chaim is the Jewish interpretation of the Tree of Life.  Very appropriate in this location.

Not quite the composition that I wanted, but there was a wire wastebasket immediately below this frame.  And the basket was firmly bolted to the ground.  So I had to work with what I had.

But at least I had that opportunity.

    1. Shimon – I did, taking a bit of artistic license. But not until after a bit of research, since I considered this tree to be a tree of life and hope in the middle of the memorial. I do understand that the name is typically attributed to the Torah, much for the same reasons. -Bill
