STOLPERSTEINE / STUMBLING STONES

For:
HERMAN ISIDOOR DE LIEME
BETTY DE LIEME-POLAK

The German artist Gunter Demnig started placing the first Stolpersteine in 1997 in the Berlin's Kreuzberg district. Meanwhile there are Stolpersteine in many countries .
It reminds the Holocaust in World War II. A Stolperstein is a concrete stone of 10 x 10cm, with a brass plate on top, in which the name, date of birth and decease and also place of decease is punched into. The Stolperstein gets a place in the pavement in front of the former house of the victim. By doing this, Gunter Demnig gives a private memorial to each victim. His motto is: ' A HUMAN BEING IS FORGOTTEN ONLY WHEN HIS OR HER NAME IS FORGOTTEN'.
