It was one of the most memorable workshops in the history of art education in Israel.

April 8, 2018

Gottesman Etching Center, Kibbutz Cabri, northern Israel

“Visions of the Holocaust”


Gunter Demnig, the parent of the Stolpersteine;

Survivors of the death camp;

Israeli teachers of art and their teenage students.

The mission:

Using the Stolpersteine as inspiration for the teens’ visions of the Holocaust and its meaning to them

This is the result – some of the most memorable and moving images ever seen.

As Doron, 16 years old, stated: “This is the hardest and most important thing for an artist – and the great-grandchild of Shoah survivors – to envision – and to visualize.”

Facilitated by Terry Swartzberg, head of the Munich chapter of the Stolpersteine family, the workshop was also attended by Katja Demnig, head of education at the Stolpersteine, and others.
