Stolpersteine fur die Rosenthals


Sometimes it pays to look down. If not, you might miss these commemorative plaques or Stolpersteine that remind us of the former residents of many apartments and homes around Berlin. The Stolpersteins are a private initiative that began in Berlin, but you can now find them in many other European cities as well. For more signs, visit Signs, Signs.

  2. I find that looking up and looking down offers some interesting opportunities for photos. The deportation stones are very sobering. Lest we forget!

  12. I'd never heard of these before (thanks for including that link - all of which I read). This helps keep their names going as many people wouldn't go into a cemetery to see their graves (if they had one) but now would know where they lived.
