The making of a Stolpersteine. Sculptor Michael Friedlaender has been making the Stolpersteine for Conceptual Artist Gunter Demnig for the last 14 years: 'Originally Gunter approached me and said do you want to make the one‘s i cannot make. After 3 weeks i was making them all.' Michael has made Stolpersteine‘s in 21 different languages and they have been placed in 23 different countries. 'The hard part is not the work itself. It is what happened to the people named.  Here i am working on the names of 2 sisters aged 20 and 22. They were German and escaped Nazi Germany by fleeing to Belgium but Belgium was over run in the war and they were both captured and deported to  Auschwitz. Murdered on their day of arrival. It is still a fact that sometimes i still stop and cry while working here.' #stolpersteine #berlin #art #conceptualart #editorial #reportage #ühotojournalism #holocaust #antifa #memory #europe #notforgotten
