Memorial stones


Seen outside the Hamburger Bahnhof. These stones are inscribed with the names of artists who have died as a result of HIV/AIDS. For more signs, take a look at Signs, Signs.

    3. Yikes! I thought it was a place to honor artists. I missed the HIV/AIDS reference. So embarrassed and so sorry.

  5. Oh, NO artists walk of fame these stones are to remember people who died of Aids. Some are known , other are private stones . Nothing to do eith Jews.

  9. It has also a bit of a graveyard memorial outlook but I assume thats the goal of the designer.

  11. I like it. We have a similar walk just outside out zoo. They sold the bricks as a fund raising ploy and now there are thousands of them covering the walk that leads to the zoo.

    2. Unfortunately, there was no sign outside to let people know what these stones signify. :(
      Thanks for the information... hope the new link will clear up the confusion.

    3. Not only artists, unknown persons can.command a memorial stone with the name of a child, husband , friend.
      I am bit angry cause I have private stones there and photos are taken without explaining first what this place means. So Jack is wondering why there is not yet the name of Halycon . I'm shockef.

  12. Sad, but also pretty in a way, - beautiful letters, and I like the fact that all the stones are the same size.
