The Initiative Stolpersteine in Frankfurt am Main

The Frankfurt initiative began in 2003 and has since then laid until Mai 2015 1.000 Stolpersteine. Several groups of people research the fate of the victims, ask for support from institutions of the various city districts, coordinate the laying of the stones and the accompanying ceremonies, and inform the public of the activities. The initiative is particulary interested in contacting descendants and relatives of the victims.

The City of Frankfurt am Main embraces this initiative and many institutions support them. Amongst these are The Jewish Museum, The Bureau for Science and Art, and The Institute for City History. Additionally, schools, church parishes, and various other associations are also involved and take an active part in the laying of the stones. The life stories of the people for whom stones are laid appear in a yearly documentation.

Thus far Stolpersteine have been laid in the following Frankfurt am Main city districts:
Altstadt, Bahnhofsviertel, Bergen-Enkheim, Bockenheim, Bornheim, Dornbusch, Eckenheim, Eschersheim, Fechenheim, Gallus, Ginnheim, Griesheim, Gutleut, Heddernheim, Höchst, Innenstadt, Nied, Niederrad, Nordend, Ostend, Praunheim, Riederwald, Rödelheim, Römerstadt, Sachsenhausen, Sindlingen, Unterliederbach, Westend
