Gunter Demnig’s Stolpersteine have been installed in Bochum since 2004. You can find them throughout the city embedded into the pavement outside the last homes of the victims of National Socialism. With this app you can quickly and easily locate all of Bochum’s Stolpersteine.

Stolpersteine are small memorial plaques which, when taken all together, create a historical monument. Many of the residents of Bochum participate in the project by sponsoring a Stolpersteine and researching the biography of the person being commemorated.

App features:

• Find Stolpersteine in your area and other places
• Search for Stolpersteine by victim’s name, street or postcode
• Read biographies of people commemorated by the Stolpersteine

Do you you know the names of any victims? Use this app to search for Stolpersteine laid in their memory. Are you new to the area? Using GPS, the app plots all the Stolpersteine near you on a map.

This app is an open source project with contributions from Claus Höfele, Hendrik Spree, Rachel Höfele, and Tom Reinert (
