On the anniversary of the Kristallnacht pogrom of November 9 and 10, 1938, Dr. Ruth Mandel, Professor of Cultural Anthropology at University College London, discusses her ethnographic research on Stolpersteine (stumbling stones), a counter-memorial art project marking the final homes of Jewish and other victims of Nazi violence found throughout Europe. How do local communities incorporate these street-level brass stones in their commemorations, and how do the stones’ locations in different countries influence these acts of remembrance?
