The Stolpersteine project, launched by German artist Gunter Demnig in 1995, commemorates victims of the Holocaust. Demnig installs the stones into the sidewalk at the front entrance of the residence where the victim last lived before being deported by the Nazis. Demnig has installed more than 30,000 stones all across Europe at the request of families of victims or local authorities. Stolpersteine translates to "stumbling stones."
