In my series without I visited different places in Germany where 96x96 centimeter large stones called ‚Stolperstein‘ have been installed on pavements. A stolperstein literally translated as „stumbling block“ is a type of hand engraved monument created by artist Gunter Demnig to commemorate victims of Nazi oppression, including the Holocaust. The stones remember the victims of expulsion and extermination - Jews, Gypsies, the politically persecuted, homosexuals and Jehovah‘s Witnesses amongst others. One can find a countless number of these in Germany as well as all over Europe. The stones detail information about the deceased : the name, year of birth and the fate, as well as the dates of deportation and death, if known. Through my images,
I capture a feeling of the place and remember these stories that should never be repeated.
