Laying of "Stolpersteine"

The DGIM supports the art project "Stolpersteine" (stumbling stones) by the artist Gunter Demnig as part of its efforts to commemorate and remember.

The "Stolpersteine" are brass paving stones set into the ground. They draw attention to places where people lived who were persecuted, expelled, deported or murdered by the National Socialists. About one fifth of the more than 1,200 DGIM members in 1933 were affected by such Nazi crimes, without the DGIM having shown any solidarity at the time.

Ongoing research is being carried out to find out who among these affected DGIM members has already been honoured with Stolpersteine. According to the current state of research, these are:

The first laying of Stolpersteine, which was initiated by the DGIM, took place in Wiesbaden on 27 October 2021. This was followed by further layings of Stolpersteine in Berlin and Hamburg. More are planned.
