Such a powerful memorial, moved me to tears. The statue is open to the elements as it sits under a whole in the roof. On the day we saw it the weather was cold, I should imagine that when it’s raining or covered in snow...More

This was really emotional. First I walked in the room and after that I read the explanation outside. Then I visited it again. It touched me. This monument has real character ❤️ Visit it if you have a possibility.

Amazing architecture and minimalism. Light enters from the rounded roof opening and creates mystical feeling in the premise. Be there during the mid-day for great experience.
