I found them very thoughtful and moving memorials. By placing them in the pavement, people keep polishing them with their feet. As I've said before, there's no people I know that have faced the crimes of their past generations the way today's Germans face their Nazi infamy.

There are many memorials to the victims of the Nazi regime in Germany. Jonathan L introduces us to some of the smaller, lesser-known ones in Berlin.

I am so glad you wrote this article. I saw the stumbling stones when I was in Northern Germany last year. Excellent article and photos!

I have to admire the Germans for looking at their historic atrocities full on and not sugar coating anything. These stones use the word "Ermordet", which means "Murdered". I wonder how many other nations in the world would say that about their past actions?

Few indeed, and it's a change (a controversial one for many) from earlier years when it was difficult to find anyone in Germany who acknowledged having even been there. There was a great deal of that in the late 50s when we lived there. Perhaps what is significant is that the recognition was NOT at the moment of defeat, but only after struggle and reflection. If you're interested, there's an official German site for Sites of Remembrance 1933-1945 at www.orte-der-erinnerung.de with many links...
