Stolpersteine NRW – Gegen das Vergessen
(Stolpersteine NRW – For Remembering)

Through a smartphone app and a website, "Stolpersteine NRW" provides an innovative, interactive approach to the topic of National Socialism. The starting point is Gunter Demnig's "Stolpersteine" project: Since the mid-1990s, the artist and delegates have been laying small brass memorial plaques in Europe's streets. Each Stolperstein, which translates to "stumbling stone", commemorates a person that was persecuted, deported, murdered or driven to suicide by the National Socialist regime. "Stolpersteine NRW" extends the work into the digital realm, covering an entire German state for the first time. An interactive map shows each of approximately 15,000 Stolpersteine in NRW. Biographical texts, illustrations, audios and historical photos make the stories behind the Stolpersteine experienceable.
