On the day of commemoration of the November pogroms 1938

In their totality, the stones 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.
