Holocaust memorial project in Berlin

German artist Gunter Demnig cleans two newly laid pieces of the Holocaust memorial project “Stolpersteine” (stumbling blocks) after placing them into the pavement outside a residential building in Berlin, April 25, 2014. The blocks read: “Here lived Dr. Erich Blumenthal, born 1883, deported 29.11.1942, murdered in Auschwitz. Here lived Helene Blumenthal, born 1888, deported 29.11.1942, murdered in Auschwitz.”
