Every artist is an individualist and individual artists, divided into groups, do not want to appear disregarded when presented to the public. This is why it is necessary that all exhibition spaces  be of equal importance and on the same level. If divided into many levels, respective artists may feel discriminated against. This is another reason why a clear articulation of the plan is needed, as every group wants the public to find their own way to it without following winding routes.”

The burial grounds are designed in such a way the multitude of uniform stones creates a powerful representation of the high number of victims of the German forces, while at the same time they enable the creation of individual memories according to the wishes of the relatives of the deceased. Larger common stones are envisaged to denote the memory of the rest.
