    I have been wanting to talk about this place for a very long time - Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe in Berlin. I visited this popular tourist site back in October 2018 (Some background: I am from Hong Kong and was in Denmark for a semester exchange. I loves museums and I personally really like history and cultures although I am a business major!) There are two sides of the whole memorial experience - so basically the indoor part is the museum where texts, graphics and photos were shown. There is a quota for each round of visit, so be sure you go there earlier as we have to queue for a bit! The outdoor area is shown in my photo above, and you can stay there for as long as you want to. After all, this was definitely one of the heaviest, saddest and most emotional places I have been to. I literally wanted to cry when I was there and i couldn't finish reading everything shown. I couldn’t never imagine being a Jew in the 1930s/40s..
