Stolperstein Ceremony and Panel Discussion
May 30, 2022 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
On 30 May 2022 London will be the site of the installation of Britain’s first Stolperstein, ‘stumbling stone.’
The world’s largest decentralised memorial art installation, the Stolperstein project has placed over 100,000 stones in 26 countries. Created by German artist Gunter Demnig 25 years ago, these small brass plaques are placed in the pavement in front of the homes or places of work of victims of Nazi persecution.
The stone to be installed in London commemorates Ada van Dantzig, a young Dutch-Jewish paintings conservator who came to this country in the 1930s to work, but later re-joined her family in the Netherlands. She was murdered in Auschwitz on 14 February 1943.
This public installation will take place at 11 am on May 30, at
3 Golden Square, Soho, London, the site where Ada worked.
Following the installation, from 2pm-4pm, The Wiener Holocaust Library will host a panel discussion featuring the artist Gunter Demnig, who will speak about his work. Several scholars and practitioners will also comment on related themes of Holocaust memory, memorialisation, and education. Pre-registration is required and tickets are available through this link: Stolperstein Ceremony Tickets, Mon 30 May 2022 at 14:00 | Eventbrite
