Stumbling block challenge

On November 9th 1938 was the peak of the so called November pogroms in Nazi Germany. A series of massive riots against the Jewish population. At the end over 7.000 Jewish business were either plundered or devastated. Over half of the synagoges were destroyed and over 30.000 Jews were imprisoned.

On November 9th, the Neuengamme Memorial in Germany one of the main initiators of this noble undertaking, wants to get as many people across Europe to either clean a "Stolperestein" or "Struikelsteen" in Dutch or "Stumbling block" in English. If you do not have a "Stolperstein" in your area you could light a candle for a victim of National Socialism during World War 2. Please upload your video on you social media accounts with the hashtag "November9". Thank you so much for your help!

This project of showing respect is so worthwhile and imporant, therfore I am gladly supporting this project! Let's try to make this a European challenge!

How to clean:

  • Wipe of the all of the rough dirt with a soft cloth (we do not want to scratch it)
  • Apply Brass Polishing using a non-abrasive sponge.
  • Rinse with water (No chemicals please!)
  • Wipe dry

Thank you so much!
