Stones to make you stumble in your heart

Stolpersteine

In places all over Germany and other European countries one can find Stolpersteine – cobblestones called “stumbling stones” or “stumbling blocks”, commemorating victims of National Socialism near places where they lived or worked.  After almost 30 years, these stones now number several ten thousands and more are added almost on a daily basis.   More information about the project can be found here.

The initiator likes to quote a child who said about his remembrance project: “You don’t trip on a STOLPERSTEIN, you stumble with your head and your heart.”
