The memorial stones of the Heads of State
on the European Holocaust Memorial

 

The conception: One stone from each country

The idea had been born in 1993 already. Back then, the citizens association Landsberg im 20. Jahrhundert (until 2009 previous owner of the European Holocaust Memorial on the former concentration camp Kaufering VII) wrote to fifteenEuropean heads of state. By doing so, in the course of time, the association wanted to create a European memorial against totalitarianism and violence that clearly demonstrates the European dimension of the Holocaust. So far, the only negative replies came from the German federal presidents Herzog and Rau. On the contrary: all the contacted presidents and royal houses reacted in a very positive way.

It is now our task as European Holocaust Memorial Foundation to enable an everlasting dignified memory at the Holocaust Memorial.
