Scattered throughout Rome are these tiny memorials to the victims of WWII. These little monuments, known as stumbling stones, are the work of German artist Gunter Demnig and memorialize the men, women, and children taken from Rome and deported to Nazi death or concentration camps. I find them sometimes when just walking down a street. They make you stop to read them and realize that someone stood right there one day, and was never to return. Sometimes there is just one, other times a group -- perhaps an entire family wiped out by the Nazis. Absolutely heartbreaking.

We never seem to look down in our travels, but we should especially in the Jewish Ghetto of Rome. You may spot something glinting on the pavement. A little brass cobblestone or plaque set into the pavement outside an old door. We set out to find these brass plaques. We were on an adventure, and we did find them. What is really fascinating is to understand the “Why.”

These plaques are engraved and were placed to tell the story of who lived here, their name, where they were arrested and what happened to them. It was the idea of a Berlin artist, Gunter Demnig, back in 1993. His goal was to commemorate the lives lost by Jews, Roman gypsies, political prisoners, homosexuals and others to German National Socialism and the Nazi concentration camps of World War II. There are many “pietre d’inciampo,” (stolpersteines in German or stumbling blocks in English) all over the world and all over Rome, not only in the Jewish Ghetto. It was truly a moving experience.

These stumbling stones are a reminder of the families that lived here, and were deported and killed by the Nazi's.

The stumbling stones are not unique to Rome, but there are quite a few that can be found here. The story is simple, but heartbreaking. Each stone marks a person confirmed to have been taken from this location to a Nazi camp during World War II.
