Synopsis

The documentary Stumbling Stone is a portrait, a road movie and the story of the largest decentralized memorial in the world. The focus is on the conceptional artist Gunter Demnig, who has set 17 000 names of forgotten Nazi victims in concrete of German and European pavements.

The project is declined by members of the Jewish community, Neo-Nazis are fighting it, and in some cities it is illegal. But behind every stone stands a committed helper and private donations. They see a possibility to bring history back to people’s minds through Demnig’s brass-plated stones. The restless artist still manufactures and lays every single stone because he is convinced that this is the only way to take every individual fate back home.
