Stolpersteine Ceremony

THE SULTAN VICTORIUS GUTTSMANN FAMILY

TRUE BERLINERS

The Sultan family's belief in love, truth and humanity could not be taken no matter how hard they tried.

The Stolpersteine ceremony commemorates our family and all the families persecuted by the National Socialists. It is an opportunity for communities to come together and collectively heal the wounds of those who hurt and carry guilt and shame for Germany's National Socialist past.

 

Many feel they don't have a right to acknowledge their pain, are embarrassed, ashamed or feel guilty for actions they didn't take, actions someone they love took or circumstances outside their control. Our hearts and arms are open to everyone and acknowledge all suffering.

Forgiveness is how we move forward together.

COME TO THE STOLPERSTEINE CEREMONY

Join us to commemorate a family of true Berliners who met each moment that unfolded for them during this time with grace, courage and love. We acknowledge and honour the past to remind us of what can happen when we don't protect and preserve humanity.
