About Stolpersteine

„Stolpersteine“ is an art project of the artist Gunter Demnig of Cologne. By the stones he intends to bring back the names of the victims back to their former homes.

„On the Stolperstein the victim gets back his or her name; each victim is represented by their own unique stone – the identity and the fate, if known, can be read.“

„Those who want to read the name of the victim had to bow down. In this moment, they will have bowed down before the victim.“
