Studio Libeskind

The Dutch national Holocaust Memorial in Amsterdam will add 103,000 names of the Jewish, Roma, and Sinti victims who were killed by the Nazis during World War II. Architect Daniel Libeskind, AIA, of New York–based firm Studio Libeskind revealed his plans for the design on Dec. 16. Erected from red brick, the monument will take the form of the Hebrew word “Lizkor,” which translates to “in the memory of,” with the victim’s name, date of birth, and date of death laser-etched into each brick. “More than 71 years after the Holocaust, there’s no memorial in this city that is significant,” Libeskind says.
