O_O For starters, this is a neat shot and the perspective of this place I love so much. All the bluish shadow and long like corridor with the block monuments on the side, and the live yellow and green at the end, like light as the end of a tunnel. It's beautiful and just a tad spooky.
But the quote and actual place makes me stop and think, a little sadness enters and I remember. I've never seen this memorial before and in a way I am glad there is one. That was one of the most horrible moments in human history and inhumanity. It needs to be remembered, for the dead, and to help prevent if ever happening again.
I took exactly the same shot from that angle but in B&W. I have to admit that yours is better - I love the tree at the bottom perfectly centered bewteen the concrete slabs, it's almost an image of hope and triumph of life over death.
I've been there once, a few years ago. It's a really impressive monument.
I really like this picture. In my opinion the contrast between the trees (vibrant colors, nature, freedom, life) and the concrete blocks (cold blue, lifeless, darkness, imprisonment, death) translates the feelings of the victims of the Holocaust: you can see life but it's slipping away and you get more and more surrounded by coldness and death. It's like a path that leads from the light into the darkness.
