    The cubes seem to be falling.This is to symbolise the drastic threat to Jews living in Germany after the »Kristallnacht« pogrom of 1938. The cubes are positioned in a half circle so that visitors see nine burning synagogues in one view. A slit in the cubes affords a view of the entire series of photographs.
