Stolpersteine (stumbling stones) is a project of the artist Gunter Demnig. The project commemorates people who were persecuted by the Nazis between 1933 and 1945.

Stolpersteine are concrete blocks measuring 10x10cm which are laid into the pavement in front of the last voluntarily chosen places of residence of the victims of the Nazis. Their names and fate are engraved into a brass plate on the top of each Stolperstein. Individualized memorial stones are laid in order to remind of the people deported and then murdered by the Nazis during the Holocaust, into the sidewalk outside of the victims’ last known residence.

In Berlin, Stolpersteine exist since 1996. You can find information connected to the Stolpersteine in Berlin and more about the project itself on this website, being the common platform of all Berlin Stolpersteine-groups.
