The memorial is based on a simple shape of a regular tetrahedron. Elevation of the tetrahedron to three different levels and multiplication of their quantity imbues the memorial with a spatial story, which can be understood in its repetitive structure as passing on memories or memory itself. Only one side of the largest top tetrahedron is inscribed with simple text. The memorial is cast from bronze.
