Stumbling Stones

Stolpersteine – stumbling stones or blocks – are cobblestones with a brass surface that are inserted into sidewalks outside the former homes of people murdered by the National Socialists, to commemorate their fate. The project’s initiator is the Cologne-based artist Gunter Demnig, who began laying the first stumbling stones in Berlin-Kreuzberg in 1997 (www.stolpersteine.com).

Thanks to very generous donations from our museum visitors and members of the society, the Society of Sponsors Blind Trust was able to have stones laid for all the murdered workers in the Workshop at the Blind whose names are known.

The society would now like to have stones laid for all the known family members of the murdered workers at the Workshop for the Blind. There are still some stones to be laid. Each stumbling stone costs € 95. We are very grateful for any donations. The donation account details are:
