📌 El Monumento al Holocausto de Berlín se construyó en memoria a los judíos asesinados
📌 Está muy cerca de la Puerta de Brandenburgo
📌 Se compone de 2711 bloques de hormigón de diferentes alturas que van desde ras del piso hasta casi los 5 metros y forman una especie de laberinto sobre un espacio de 19.000 metros cuadrados.
📌 El desnivel del piso y la diferente altura de los bloques, logran un efecto especial mientras caminás entre ellos por sus estrechos pasillos, en un profundo silencio.
📌 En los bloques se utilizó la pintura antigraffiti llamada Protectosil, que justamente es elaborada por la misma empresa que proveía el Zyklon B o Cyclon B, que es el pesticida a base de cianuro que fue utilizado en las cámaras de gas de los campos de exterminio nazis durante la Segunda Guerra Mundial.
📌 Ese pesticida era fabricado por la compañía IG Farben, que era la unión de la empresa farmacéutica Bayer y otras dos compañías alemanas.
Actualmente se sigue fabricando en Chequia #turismo#turista#turistear#travelgram#instatravel#travellers#paisajes#paesaggi#paesaggio#landscape #super_world_channel #ig_europa #europa#alemania#germany#holocausto#monumento#memorial#segundaguerramundial
Resan runt om andra världskrigets fotspår fortsätter, idag besökte vi förintelsemonumentet. Att något så ofattbart kan ge ett sånt lugn är helt otroligt. Helt klart värt besöket. #närkegoeseurope#holocaust#memorial#berlin
Using a memorial key chain with your loved one’s picture, name, or a special saying can remind you of the person you love every time you start your car, enter your house, or hold onto your keys. #love#family#memorial#life#home

Pack a go bag when you have to leave your home at a moment's notice (such as a wildfire or hurricane evacuation). Include three days' worth of clothes and medications, a toiletry bag, important paperwork, electronics, cash, food, and water. #love#family#memorial#life#home
So that skate took us almost 8 miles, up the coast towards Badalona Beach.. past a memorial to the dead, past a huge solar panel architectural wonder thing with some awesome open spaces and slopes to free wheel down, past those three tall chimney things that you can see for miles that mark the ‘yes we are miles from home’ points, over the river... and with a bus ride tagged on the end.. we finally arrived. By that point I’m too knackered to skate anymore let alone join in the dance workshops 😵😆 Still some sights ticked off..

Tattoos are how I memorialize important moments in my life, my loved ones, and times I’ve felt overcome by God’s embrace. .
This tattoo is a sunflower from my half marathon a few years back in the Rocky Mountains with Lucy’s paw print hidden in the center. I wanted both of these things because they were there for me at both physically and mentally challenging times. In the middle of the run in the Rockies this flower stood alone with the mountains behind it. .
Sunflowers symbolize adoration and loyalty as well as bringing light into your life. All of these things remind me of Lucy.
Lucy was a constant for me through tough childhood years, college, boyfriends and breakups, family changes, and more.
What a perfect reminder of my sweet girl ❤️

dear patti, it was a muddy, rainy, afternoon music festival not long after you returned to performing. @wilco was there. @billybraggofficial was there. the spirit of @woodyguthrie was there. we were there. and we were in awe of you. it seemed you needed space to pace, as if you had retreated into yourself, as if there was a riot going on inside. my heart went out to you and gave you a giant imaginary hug. torrential downpours assaulted the audience who were standing in mud up to thier ankles and knees. when you sang, @grantshowbiz and i ran into the crowd, dancing, as we let the rain fall on us; as you beamed the energy of a thousand lifetimes into every atom within earshot. that's power. there had been a nervous expectation in the air. bravery flowed through your veins. for you, here's a Fred Sonic Smith Moonrise over the Pacific ocean. #memorial#timelapse#harvest#moonrise#moonset#newname#proposal#fredsonicsmith#fullmoon#pr
crude, brute, impatient, barbaric. lack of sense of grace. no eye for beauty. survive, kill, repeat. grow up. evolve. create beauty beyond understanding. glorify creations of own poetical imagination. build worlds. then destroy them. give life. then take it away.
wild germania, refined greece, pragmatic rome. and then the fall of it all. arise from the ashes. flourish. conquer the world. and let it burn.
europe, you are the birthplace of human cruelty. of bloodshed. of death. mother of progress. of art. of culture. the tiniest of them all. and the greatest bully history has ever seen. you were divided, young, wild. your heart was pounding, blood was boiling. couldn’t get a hold of yourself. but through blood and iron you finally calmed down. and are now mature. endure, for you are our home. love-hate mother-child relationship.
to the ones who say europe is now more divided than ever - pick a book.
and then read it. you have to read it. it is very important that you read the book.
On 9/11, we would like to take a moment to honor all the men, women, and K9s that risked and lost their lives to ensure the safety of the American people. #NeverForget

18 years ago today, 2974 lives and families were changed forever. Over 1,000 people have died from exposure to debris and more than 37,000 are officially recognized as sick. The attacks profoundly impacted Canada, resulting in our 12 year operations in Afghanistan where we lost 162 Canadians and thousands have been forever changed as a result of their service.
