Everything You Never Knew You Wanted to Know About Berlin



I am very happy and proud to inform you that my very special wish to have a Stolperstein (stumbling stone) for a little Jewish boy from Kreuzberg, Berlin Eisenstädt about whom I wrote on his birthday on February 6th (please follow the link), is going to be realised.

The Stolperstein for Berlin is going to be laid on Thursday March 28th, 2013 between 14.30 and 17.00 in Erkelenzdamm No. 9 in Berlin-Kreuzberg.

Through sheer coincidence, at the time when I was working to commemorate a child that became the victim of the Nazi regime in the city after whom he was named, two other people chose to sponsor two Stolpersteine for the inhabitants of the same house. We never met and never knew of each other´s plans. The Stolpersteine they have sponsored are for Kurt and Käte Eisenstädt.

For Berlin´s parents…

I sincerely hope you can come and be there when it happens. This is going to be one of the hardest moments in my life but also one of the best. Please join us.

    As you know, I think that the Stolpersteine project is a very worthwhile and appropriate initiative. I’m pleased to hear that you’ve been able to establish the facts of one victim’s life and will see the stone laid in his memory.

    I’m so sorry I can’t be there when this particular Stolperstein is being laid. When in Berlin I took picture of the ones I saw. I think it is a very good idea. to have those Stolpersteine. People should stop and think.

      I cannot even begin to tell how important to me it has become. I pass his house almost every day and even when I do not, I can´t stop thinking of what was done to him. The fact that his parents are going to receive their Stolpersteine on the very same day means so much to me – it´s a family coming together again. It is almost too much to bear.

    That’s truly lovely of you. I hope to sponsor one one day, as well.
