Holocaust Memorial

1995 I installed 16 figures commemorating all of the people victimised
by the Nazi regime. The eight different groupings, within the Consentration
Camps, consisted of:politicalRoma and Sinti"Asoziale"homosexuals
Jews"criminals"migrants, Jehovas witneses !
The figures focused on the ruins of the portal of the Anhalter station.
This was infact one of the stations from which deportations to Buchenwald
and the "Ghetto Theresienstadt" had taken place, a fact that even most
native Berliners did not realise. After a few days, the first figures were
vandalised, altogether half of the figures were distroyed, partly by juvanil
vandalisum partly politicaly motivated. The police protected the installation
for the three months that I was permitted to have it installed. After this the
eight remaining figures went on a tour of five different previous concentration
camps, Haus der Wannsee-Konferenz, to Bonn and Düsseldorf aswell as
Weimar. 1999 the figures are permanently installed in Ravensbrück.
The point I am making, is one of none segregation; to remember all people,
irespective of what, religion, political or personal convictioin they were,
who were all victims of Nazi ideologie.
