Daniel Libeskind’s maiden completion is probably the most complex museum building in the city. A house without an entrance, without windows, in an expressive zigzag shape – it objects equally to smooth integration into the city’s fabric and to the usual functionality of a museum building. Inside, the building is structured by so-called voids. These voids or hollow bodies, standing on an ideal line, symbolize the irretrievable destruction of Jewish culture by the Holocaust. Three underground axes stand for the paths taken by Jews in Germany in the 1930s: into hope, into exile or into annihilation.
