Ghetto Memorial

This year Budapest commemorates the 70th year of the formation of its ghetto.

Péter Sugár and the Szövetség ’39 Group’s installation makes you stop for a moment and think about those dark times.

On the steel wall the text appears in Hungarian, English and Hebrew to bring the story of life and death, the cronicle of the holocaust and the revival of Jewish life in the neighbourhood closer to everyone.

On the map imprinted into the concrete the ghetto’s street structure can be seen, marking on it some of the important institutions of the area. If one goes closer pictures from the past can be seen through the peek holes, carrying the today’s passer-by into the gone-by past.
