The Silent Library in Berlin, August 2001. Built in commemoration of the 1933 Nazi-organized burning of over 20,000 decadent, “un-German” books, it consists of empty book shelves sunk into the ground, visible through a pane of glass. AKA The Submerged Library. So simple you could almost miss it, unless a tour guide pointed it out or you wandered into the Bebelplatz at night.
