New Stolpersteine, or “stumbling blocks,” were unveiled in Prague to honor Holocaust victims. One of the stones commemorates Emma Ledererová, who was deported to the Terezín internment camp during World War II and subsequently killed there. The stone was placed at her last known address on Wenceslas Square.
The Stolpersteine project, initiated by German artist Gunter Demnig, involves installing small plaques on the pavement to remember Holocaust victims across Europe.
In Prague alone, there are now over 300 such stones, each bearing the names, birthdates, deportation details, and, if known, the location and date of death of the individuals being commemorated.
