The Canadian Premiere of the film Stolperstein is part of Holocaust Education Month 2014 which is a program of the Shoah (Holocaust) Committee of the Jewish Federation of Ottawa.
The movie tells the story of the Stolperstein Project which was started by German artist Gunter Demnig who creates tiny brass Stolperstein (stumbling stones) and embeds them into the concrete in front of homes where individuals, who were targets of the Nazis, had once lived, were rounded up, taken away and murdered. Each stone begins with HERE LIVED…
As of December 2013, Demnig has realized over 43,500 memorials in over 1,000 cities in Europe.
