Our association is a contact point for all who would like to organise the laying of a Stolperstein („Stumble Stone“) in Dresden. We work in closely with relatives and descendants, as well as with artist and initiator of the Stolpersteine-project, Gunter Demnig throughout this process. We research the victim’s biographies and the potential laying sites of the stones extensively, and also work closely with the culture and building authorities of Dresden. We cooperate with several partners, such as the ‘Jews in Dresden’ archive of the Foundation of Memorials in Saxony. We are also able to help relatives to secure sponsors for the stones, if they so desire. Sponsors can be private citizens as well as associations, educational institutions, companies or foundations, and they would contribute to the cost for manufacturing and the laying of a Stolperstein.
We are always looking for people to help by giving their time to ensure the continuation of this historically important project. If you want to get involved or can help please get in touch with us via our contact page.
