Stolperstine in Cologne Project Bild.png This list is part of the wiki project Stolpersteine ​​in Cologne . This project serves to coordinate, expand and maintain the Cologne stumbling block lists . In addition to creating biographical information, we would like to compare existing information and collect and document incorrect entries.

If you would like to help supplement this list, please take a look at the relevant project page .

The list of stumbling blocks is based on the data and research of the NS Documentation Center of the City of Cologne , partially supplemented by information and comments from Wikipedia articles and external sources. The aim of the art project is to document biographical details of the people who had their (last) voluntarily chosen residence in Cologne in order to preserve their memory.

Note: In many cases, however, it is no longer possible to comprehend a complete description of their life and their path of suffering. In particular, the circumstances of her death can often no longer be researched. Official death notices from ghettos, detention centers, hospitals and concentration camps can often contain information that conceals the true circumstances of death, but are also documented taking this fact into account.
