Germany (Part 3)

Hey Everyone! Todays post is about Berlin and is part 3 of a series of blogs I have been doing on Germany. You might be able to tell from my other Germany posts that I love visiting this country. My grandfather served in World War II so ever since I was a young girl I have loved learning about the history of the war. What I love most about Berlin is that there are little memorials all over the city to recognize what happened during that time.

Memorials:

Like I mentioned earlier, Berlin has little memorials all over the city recognizing the fallen in WWII. I recommend doing some research on these memorials before you go or you might just walk by them without knowing (I probably would have). For instance the picture below shows some stolperstein’s I stumbled upon. A stolperstein is a brass “stone” that has the name of a Jewish person who lost their life during the holocaust. These stones are all throughout the city and are placed either outside the home of where the person lived before the war or outside of their place of work.
