Freising - Stolpersteine

Freising - Stolpersteine
The pavement in some German towns incorporates so-called Stolpersteine (stumble stones) in front of houses once inhabited by Jewish citizens who would be murdered during the Third Reich.

You can walk past them without noticing, but you can also “stumble” over them and be reminded of Germany’s darkest years: a memento of those who were brutally taken from their homes and killed in concentration camps and, at the same time, a warning that such atrocities should never happen again.

Davon habe ich auch welche aus Bad Godesberg.
Ich fand das damals eine gute Idee, auch wenn viele dagegen waren.

Das Mindeste, was man tun kann, ist: nicht zu vergessen. Die Stolpersteine vergegenwärtigen unaufdringlich das, was in Zahlen überhaupt nicht zu fassen ist.

Auch in München hat es eine Initiative gegeben, sie in das Paviment einzulassen, aber diese ist (leider, was mich betrifft) gescheitert. Ich habe die vorgebrachten Argumente vergessen, aber ich glaube, daß sie nicht nur von verdächtiger Seite kamen...

There should be tears. Nobody can honestly cry for a nameless number, however big, but one can for a family, without guilt except pedigree, being torn apart and killed like animals.
