The Disappearing Wall Artwork Recalls the Holocaust That Began in 1938


In Dresden, an art installation will be exhibited that remembers the Holocaust that began in 1938. Then, on November 9, Nazis destroyed synagogues and killed Jewish people. In addition, stores and apartments were burnt down and numerous people were killed.

The pogrom is now considered the largest genocide that happened in Europe, and the interactive show will memorialize it. Disappearing Wall consists of 6,000 wooden blocks where the quotes from survivors are depicted. The installation was first created by the Goethe Institute in 2013 that matched the anniversary of the German invasion of the Soviet Union.

The work of art allows visitors to pull out the blocks with quotes from the wall and then take them home. As a result, the wall will disappear but the messages of the survivors will remain.

After, the work has been shown in various locations, including four Israeli cities. In 2020, the work of art was demonstrated in 16 European cities as a part of the German cultural program.
