“Denk-Stein-Mauer” (Memorial Wall)

Living memorial to Jewish history

Since 1995, pupils of the Löcknitz primary school have been creating a living memorial in the school courtyard, which continues to grow.

Each year, students of the sixth grade research the biographies of former Jewish neighbours, inscribing their names, dates of birth and places of death on memorial stones. The additions to the memorial are dedicated in an annual commemorative ceremony. In 2012, the 1000th memorial stone was laid.
