The proposal is radical and courageous, and evokes the tragic occasions in a bodily and direct method”. With the names of the victims written on the flat vertical stone floor of the opposite aspect, the minimize is claimed to be an acknowledgement of what’s endlessly irreplaceable. Visitors right here will probably be guided down a pathway via right into a tunnel that results in the “wound”.
