The STOLPERSTEINE project is the work of German artist Gunter Demnig. He started it in Cologne when the city refused the deportation of gypsies to Nazi camps. Later he dedicated it to all the victims of National Socialism (Jews, homosexuals, political prisoners, members of the International Brigades ....) between 1933 and 1945. These victims include the group of Spanish deportees.
There are currently more than 75,000 stolpersteine placed in more than 20 countries.
These are small cubic cement blocks (10 x 10 x 10 x 10 cm), one side of which is covered with a thin sheet of brass on which the victim's details (name, date of birth, deportation details and date of death or release) are engraved by hand.
WHERE TO FIND IT? Near the access stairs to the Sallent de Gállego Town Hall.
Sallent de Gállego pays tribute to Mr. Ángel Ojer Buil, neighbour and resident of the town, innocent victim of the Holocaust of Mauthausen-Gusen.
