On the day of commemoration of the November pogroms 1938
Stumbling blocks draw attention to the personal fates of victims of national socialism every day. Each individual stone symbolizes the emptiness that arose because a man was torn violently out of his neighborhood by the National Socialists.
In their totality, the Stolpersteine designed by Gunter Demnig are the "social sculpture" described by Joseph Beuys - a work of art that contributes to the well-being of a society through the participation of many individuals.
Committed people clean Stolpersteine in front of their front door, all over Berlin, in memory of the November pogroms of 1938.
