About us

More than seventy houses in Eichkamp, an area belonging to the city district of Berlin-Charlottenburg/Germany, were inhabited by residents who suffered persecution as Jews by the National Socialists in the 1930s. Some of them were well known, among them the writers Arnold Zweig (59 Zikadenweg and 9 Kuehler Weg) and Elisabeth Langgaesser (33 Eichkatzweg), the philosopher Ludwig Marcuse (25 Eichkatzweg), and the trade-unionist Siegfried Aufhaeuser (72 Zikadenweg). Fortunately, many of those residents were able to escape in time, yet often under difficult circumstances. In order to recall the life stories of the many nameless victims of the National Socialist regime, several members of the Siedlerverein Eichkamp e.V. (a non-profit organization) together with students attending the Wald-Oberschule and the Rudolf-Steiner-Schule, respectively, investigated the histories of 30 Eichkamp residents since 2008.

Most of those persecuted for their Jewish ancestry were killed in concentration camps. 27 of them have lately been honoured by commemorative ‘stumbling stones’. The descendants of two of the victims would not give their permission to have stones laid. Members of the Eichkamp Stumbling Stone Group are staying in contact with quite a number of descendants of former residents. The ‘stumbling stones’ are 10 x 10 cm large brass plaques mounted on concrete blocks. Each stone bears the inscription of name, year of birth and information about the deportation of the individual victim commemorated. The stones are inserted flush into the pavement in front of their former homes. The art project ‘Stolpersteine’ was founded in 2003 by the artist Gunter Demnig (www.stolpersteine.eu).

We are grateful to Mr Wolfgang Haney for his extensive references concerning the history of Eichkamp, to Mr Wolfgang Knoll, the former, and to Mr Helmut Loelhoeffel, the present coordinator of the ‘Stolperstein-Initiative Berlin-Charlottenburg-Wilmersdorf’. We also thank all Eichkamp neighbours who financed privately 23 ‘stumbling stones’ as well as the staff of the office of cultural activities (Kulturbeirat), city district of Berlin-Charlottenburg-Wilmersdorf, who helped finance the printing of the 'Stolperstein Flyer' (German).
