NEWS / 2 June 2022

On Wednesday 01 June, Stratford College were invited by Holocaust Education Trust Ireland in association with Dublin City Council in cooperation with the Embassy of the Federal Republic of Germany to St. Catherine's National School, Donore Avenue, Dublin 8 for a ceremony to mark the Embedding of six Stolpersteine in Dublin in memory of Irish victims of the Holocaust.

Brass topped cobblestones are embedded outside the school in memory of Ettie Gluck (neé Steinberg), Wojteck Gluck, Leon Gluck, Isaac Shishi, Ephraim Saks and Jeanne (Lena) Saks, Irish Victims of the Holocaust.

The Stolpersteine Project has become the world's largest decentralised memorial with over 90,000 Stolpersteine been laid in 27 countries. Each stone bears the name of one individual, a moving tribute to people whose names can be forgotten when looking at the Holocaust as a whole.

RTÉ featured it on the news later that evening - 'Stumbling stones' in memory of Irish Holocaust victims unveiled.
