Description

Bring history to life with this app: the most complete and continuously updated list of Berlin’s Stolpersteine.

Stolpersteine are cobblestone-sized plaques that have been embedded into the pavement outside the last homes of the victims of National Socialism. The artist Gunter Demnig has laid over 50,000 Stolpersteine across Europe. With this app you can quickly and easily locate all of Berlin’s Stolpersteine, currently more than 6,000. Now including Stolperschwellen (longer plaques commemorating a place or a group of people).

App features:

• Find Stolpersteine in your area and other places
• Search for Stolpersteine by victim’s name, street or postcode
• Read biographies of people commemorated by the Stolpersteine

Do you you know the names of any victims? Use this app to search for Stolpersteine laid in their memory. Are you new to the area? Using GPS, the app plots all the Stolpersteine near you on a map.

This app is an open source project with contributions from Claus Höfele, Hendrik Spree, Rachel Höfele, and Tom Reinert (https://github.com/optionu/stolpersteine-ios).

Stolpersteine in Berlin

13-31

I can not describe how much I value this app!!!! Instead of plotting the Stolpersteine on a traditional map, or make a list of stolpersteine near my lication, this app has the stolpersteine locations already plotted for me. It also gives a small biography of the person the stolpersteine memorializes. I wish this app plotted every stolpersteine location, in all the countries where stolpersteine are installed. We travel a lot across Europe and this app application in other cities and countries would make finding them easier. Thank you!

Great initiative.

I really like the idea of this app but unfortunately there are many inaccuracies. Places where it says there are Stolpersteine do not have them and places where I come upon them by chance are not listed. There are several on the street I live in that are not listed in the app.
