With its zigzag outline and silvery zinc façade, the exterior of Berlin's Jewish Museum, a masterpiece by Daniel Libeskind, is as bold as it is beautiful. While the expansive exhibit does address the 12 years of Nazi terror, its focus is actually on the entire 2000 years of social, political and cultural history of Jews in Germany. Before reaching the galleries visitors descend down into the basement with its three walkways called 'axes', each symbolizing a different Jewish experience: the Axis of Emigration leads to an outside garden, the Axis of the Holocaust dead-ends in a hollow space and the Axis of Continuity leads up a steep staircase to the galleries.
