    Tragedies of the Nazi era – the fates of persecuted people

    A project by the 10th class (26.04.24)

    Stolpersteine are more than just memorial stones. They are reminders of the victims of National Socialism that are embedded in the pavement of European cities and carry a strong message. In total, they can be found in 21 European countries, a testimony to the far-reaching significance of this project.
    The Stolpersteine project was initiated by the German artist Gunter Demnig and has since inspired countless people to come to terms with the individual fates of the victims of the Nazi regime. This topic has also found its place at the iDSB, especially among our 10th graders, who have intensively studied various individual fates and prepared a professional exhibition.
    The pupils in Year 10 not only did research, but also collected stories from victims from various countries such as Belgium, France, Spain and others. This diverse perspective shows the transnational scope of the horrors.

    On 26 April 2024, an exhibition was also held at our school, which was visited by the 9th, 11th and 12th grades as well as guests. This event served not only to remember, but also to educate and raise awareness of the Stolperstein project. It was an opportunity to draw attention to the individual fates and at the same time emphasise that remembrance and vigilance are essential in order not to forget the darkest chapters of history. At the iDSB, the memory of these victims lives on as a reminder for the present and an obligation for the future. We would like to take this opportunity to once again thank our dedicated tenth formers for their work.
