    The Golden Stone In 1996 the german artist Gunter Demnig started his project »Stumbling Stones«. These are brass plates which are the size 10x10cm and fixed on concrete cubes. You can find them on pavements, located in front of houses all over Europe. Every stone tells a name, date of deportation, and – if known – details to death of a person who was displaced during the Second World War by the Nazis. Most of the victims where jewish, gay, disabled or didn't share the same moral values than the Nazis did. So they took them to concentration camps, where most of them died. With a number on their lower arms and no graves. Gunter Demnig wants to bring back their names, to the places where they last chose to live by themselves. And to caution all humans, because horrible things happened right in the streets around you. You cannot really stumble and fall over the stones as they are ground-leveled. But you should stumble with heart and mind, and do everything in your power that such bad things can never happen again. http://www.stolpersteine-wuerzburg.de Illustration reportage, 2012 Docent: Florian Bayer Read Less
