The Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe (Denkmal für die ermordeten Juden Europas) in the centre of Berlin is the Holocaust memorial for Germany. It has its origins in a citizens‘ initiative that was facilitated by journalist Lea Rosh and historian Eberhard Jäckel at the end of the 1980s. On 25 June 1999, the German Federal Parliament took the decision to build the memorial according to a design by Peter Eisenman and to establish a federal foundation to run it. Construction began on 1 April 2003 and the memorial was opened to the public on 12 May 2005.
The memorial consists of a Field of Stelae covering an area of 19 000 sqm and containing 2 711 concrete blocks plus an Information Centre. The exhibition about the persecution and extermination of the European Jews and the historical crime sites was designed by Dagmar von Wilcken. 
Following an amendment on 3 July 2009, the Federal Foundation Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe is now also responsible for the Memorial to the Homosexuals Persecuted under the National Socialist Regime and the Memorial to the Murdered Sinti and Roma of Europe.
