Memorial for Holocausts 1 and 2

This monument to the six million Jews exterminated by the Nazis is a sprawling field of 2,700 stone slabs in Berlin. The artist Mel Alexenberg proposes doubling its size by adding 2,700 more stone slabs as a future memorial to the six million Jews of Israel incinerated by an Iranian nuclear bomb. 5,400 stone slabs for twelve million Jews murdered by the world’s indifference.

This memorial is not of remorse. Its pride in a job well-done, though not complete. I would rather lead the attack on Iran's nuclear cpacities then start slab contruction. i would rather his bomb annihilate the slabs already there, because as I said, they are the signature of Nazi pride.
