The Way of Human Rights is entered through a stylized triumphal arch from the Kornmarkt and lined by 27, 8-meter-high concrete pillars.
Inscribed on each of them and on two ground plaques as well as the integrated cypress oak is an article of the General Declaration of Human Rights in German and another language.
"Obligation to the Past"
The walkthrough work of art flanking the Germanisches Nationalmuseum created by the Israeli artist Dani Karavan was opened in 1993 and not only changed Nuremberg's image but also heightened the entire city's consciousness of its obligation to the past. The Way of Human Rights in Nuremberg uniquely displays the force of momentous ideas.
