As part of the cleaning project, Kärcher chose to remove biogenic growth from the 70-metre-long memorial. They did this by

a means of particularly gentle cleaning in steam mode and with extremely low surface pressure. Within the context of restoration, the Kärcher cleaning experts were using two hot water high-pressure cleaners of the type HDS 17/20 De Tr and HDS 13/20-4 S to remove the soiling. They were able to clean the base areas with hot water and reduced pressure; the steam mode of the HDS 13/20 was used for the vertically-exposed concrete surfaces.

The “Zeichen der Erinnerung” (Symbol of Remembrance) was just a design in 2006. It is based on the plans of the married couple Anne-Christin and Ole Saß, and serves both as a memorial and a monument.

 

“Zeichen der Erinnerung” (Symbol of Remembrance) Memorial

Between the winter of 1941 and the spring of 1945, nearly 3,000 Jews, Sinti and Romani people were deported to concentration camps. The camps were in Auschwitz and Theresienstadt, among others, from what is today the location of the memorial. The “Zeichen der Erinnerung” (Symbol of Remembrance) was a 2006 design. It is based on the plans of the married couple Anne-Christin and Ole Saß. And serves both as a memorial and a monument. Since then, it has been a reminder of the history of this site. Which, following the station’s closure, all but vanished from public awareness.
