‘Our Stolpersteine project is a living project, the memories are not lost’
Stolpersteine, are made since 1992 by the artist Gunter Demnig (link). They are brass stones with which we commemorate the victims of National Socialism around and during the Second World War. The Stolpersteine is therefore placed in the pavement for the last (freely chosen) home of the victims.
On each Stolpersteine is the name of one victim. This includes the year of birth, place and date of arrest by or on behalf of the regime (if applicable). And finally the place and date where the victim was killed or died.
LIVED HERE …
Stolpersteine are memorial stones and emphatically not tombstones. They help us to think about the fate of victims around and during the Second World War. They bring families back together in memory that were suddenly torn apart under National Socialism.
There are Stolpersteine in at least 1,200 locations in Germany, Austria, Belgium, Croatia, Czech Republic, Finland, France, Greece, Italy, Hungary, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Moldova, the Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Romania, Russia, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Switzerland and Ukraine.
