Jewish Museum Berlin
Located on the Lindenstraße, the Jüdisches Museum Berlin (Jewish Museum) documents the Jewish history and is a treat to all fans of architecture. The museum was designed by Daniel Liebeskind and is considered to be a masterpiece of modern architecture. The interior is made of coarse concrete, which evokes a disconcerting and raw feeling. It has no straight corners, recalling the twisted contours of a horrific explosion. The structure of the building also creates a disturbing atmosphere, making one's impression of the realities of the Holocaust even stronger.
Although some of the exhibits can be a little disturbing this ultra modern building holds a huge collection of artifacts that document the history of the Jewish nation. If you have any Jewish ancestory as I do then this is a must place to visit. Allow 2 days if you want to do any research.
