Stolpersteine in Berlin – 2012

Stolpersteine Berlin 167: In memory of Harry Gersten (Leonhardtstrasse 10)

It was in January 2012 that I first read about Stolpersteine on Slow Travel Berlin and since then I’ve seen 467 of these brass blocks in 178 locations across Berlin.

Each Stolperstein (stumbling block) represent one victim of National Socialism and the engraving on the brass tells the fate of that person.

I have seen many single memorials but have also seen as many as 12 at the site of a former building on the corner of Oranienstrasse and Skalitzer Strasse (now the location for a Chicken Imbiss).

I have taken photos of all the Stolpersteine I have seen in Berlin and I update my gallery every week.

Read my original Stolpersteine post if you’d like to know more about artist Gunter Demnig’s Stolpersteine project.
