I am not going to go in to the content of the museum because it needs to be seen first hand to be appreciated. The architecture of this building is stunning. It penetrates a mountainside and is in the shape of a splitting triangle. You can see the two sides part as they extend over the edge of the mountain. The top 4 feet or so is always above ground, and is made of one long triangular skylight that retains its form and structure from one side of the museum to the other. The lines of the skylight are a continuation of the walled structure underground.
The installation below is by Israeli artist, Menashe Kidishman. He also has a larger installation at the Jewish Museum in Berlin that uses the same materials and iconography (bottom picture). It is one of the most emotionally evocative pieces of art I have ever experienced. As pictured below, the visitor is encouraged walk over the hundreds of iron faces on the floor. As I walked over the “faces” of the victims, I was completely overwhelmed by empathy and profound sadness.
