Stolpersteine (Stumble Stones): Unique Memorials to Victims of Terror

Stolpersteine (stumbling blocks) is a project by the artist Gunter Demnig, created to remember the victims of National Socialism.  Demnig places small brass memorials in front of the last residence of the victims. The plaques are meant to be stumbled upon or found and remind those who find them of the people who were deported and murdered by the Nazis.  Stones have been laid in 610 places in Germany as well as in Austria, Hungary, the Netherlands, Belgium, the Czech Republic, Norway and the Ukraine.  For more information, please visit the Stolpersteine website
