Platz der Jüdischen Deportierten (Square of the Deported Jews)
Platz der Jüdischen Deportierten (Square of the Deported Jews) by Ulrich Rückriem marks the assembly point for Jews being deported from Hamburg. The rough stone is meant to bring to mind the wailing wall in Jerusalem. A sign near the monument reads: In remembrance of the Jewish citizens of Hamburg who, during the National Socialist tyranny, were sent from this place to their deaths in their thousands. Remember always, remain vigilant.
