Sidewalk plaques serve as stark reminders of lives cut short at tragic time in German history
Eighty years ago, a man named Wulf Fajgenbaum lived in my apartment building in the Schöneberg neighborhood of west Berlin. Every morning in fall semester 2019, on my way to teach in the Norwich University CityLAB: Berlin program, I walked past a small bronze plaque embedded in the sidewalk next to my doorway that detailed the essentials of his life and death: born in 1896, taken into “protective custody” at Sachsenhausen concentration camp in 1940, murdered there on March, 10, 1942. Between my home and the the CityLAB classroom I passed dozens more plaques in the sidewalk, stark daily reminders of lives cut short at a tragic time in German history. The Germans call these markers Stolpernsteine, or “stumble stones.”
