Compared with other artworks
Meditation gegen das Schweigen by Sylvia Fohrer (Berlin, picture 1, more information) is difficult to understand, puzzling.

Ansgar Nierhoff’s Die Bastion (Berlin, pictures 2, more information) has a similar shape. The difference is the massiveniss of the work. The question is whether the work gives the visitor a similar consolation.

The artwork Never Again Auschwitz by Jan Wolkers (Nooit Meer Auschwitz, Amsterdam, picture 3, more information) the sunlight is reflected by broken glass. The glass plates are reminiscent of gravestones. The artwork reflects on one of the most difficult issues in European history. Jan Wolkers says: “After Auschwitz, the view on the sky is violated”.
