The series “Shining Stolpersteine” – for all Nazi victims. Because #WeRemember.
Light paintings of “Stolpersteine” (Stumbling Blocks) and the lost family members.
Rosa and Erna Mittereder, murdered – along with 1000 other Munich Jews – on November 25, 1941 in Kaunas, Lithuania – and commemorated with Stolpersteine in Munich.
When the Gestapo came to deport Rosa, her daughter Erna clung to her until the Nazis took her away too. Her love for her mother cost her her life (more about Rosa and Erna).
Anton Braun, murdered on 24.10.1949 in Schloss Hartheim in Austria, and commemorated with Stolpersteine in Munich. Thank you Julian Giebelen for your help.
We will never forget you! #WeRemember.
Stolpersteine (literally “stumbling stone”, metaphorically a “stumbling block”) commemorates the victims of National Socialism. Keeping alive the memories of all Jews, Roma and Sinti, Homosexuals, Dissidents, Jehova’s Witnesses and victims of euthanasia who were deported and exterminated.
The Stolpersteine project, initiated by the German artist Gunter Demnig in 1992, aims to commemorate individuals at exactly the last place of residency – or, sometimes, work – which was freely chosen by the person before he or she fell victim to Nazi terror, euthanasia, eugenics, deportation to a concentration or extermination camp, or escaped persecution by emigration or suicide. As of 23 October 2018, 70,000 Stolpersteine have been laid making the Stolpersteine project the world’s largest decentralized memorial.
