The «Stolperschwelle»

On Wednesday Gunter Demnig visited Chernivtsi and handed over the Stolperschwelle (translated from German “stumbling threshold“) to the city.

The artist presented the memorial sign to the mayor Oleksii Kaspruk in a solemn ceremony with Holocaust survivors, representatives of the city council, Jewish organisations and the Romanian consulate. The Stolperschwelle commemorates the thousands of Chernivtsi Jews, who were deported to Transnistria in summer 1942. Its making stems from a collaborative initiative of our museum and the city.
