The work is dedicated to the victims of Nazi racial persecution – Brno Jews and Roma who perished in concentration camps during World War II.
The supporting element is a cube with an edge size of 3.14 m “floating” above the water’s surface. The pi number passing to infinity evokes constant repetition of human suffering throughout history. A veil of water flows down the walls of the cube, symbolising purification and forgiveness, and simultaneously creating a mirrored surface on the object. At the bottom of the shallow pool, under the water, there is a gilded “lest we forget” memento in Czech, Hebrew and Romani, a six-pointed Jewish star symbol, Ashoka’s chakras and a reverent inscription “Out of respect for the Jews and Roma murdered and abducted from Brno and taken to concentration camps, 1939–1945” and “To all victims of Nazi racial persecution”.
