19 Jewish memorial
On May 7 1967, the regional association of the Israelite Communities in Bavaria unveiled a Jewish memorial. Designed by Zvi Guttmann, the parabola-shaped structure features a ramp that leads downward, reminding visitors of the extermination of European Jews. At its lowest point, light shines into the memorial through an opening.
A menorah – a seven-branched candelabrum – made of marble from Peki’in is positioned on the top of the structure. The town of Peki’in in Israel symbolizes the continuity of Jewish life.
