We have some of these in Erlangen. the first time I saw then from a distance I wondered what they were. Then I read the first inscription and I realized. Each stone represents a victim of the Nazi regime and it is vital that we have memorials like these to remind us never to allow such a regime to come... More

The Stolpersteine are brass blocks with the names of former citizens of Erlangen, who have been send to concentration camps and killed by the Nazis. They are typically inserted in the pavement in front of the building where they have been living. Like it or not. This is also a part of our history. These people should not be forgotten.

They are small bronze plated cobble-stone seized memorials of 10x10 cm (4x4 inch), with an inscription of a victim of Nazi persecution. Mostly the name, date of birth,... More

Using this to help with a paper I am writing and it was great to be able to get some local information to include in this paper. The way these families have been commemorated is really touching as it is a much more personal approach to see the actual names of the people rather than trying to comprehend sheer numbers.
