The 33rd laying of stumbling stones will take place on Tuesday, 25 July, 2023. Then there will be 696 stones in Würzburg more than in any other Bavarian city.

This time the main focus will be on homosexual victims. Six men from Würzburg lost their lives in the Nazi concentration camps because of their sexual preferences.

At 10 a.m. a stumbling stone will be laid for Georg Burger, a gay man. The police academy has sponsored his stone at Saalgasse 3 near the medieval bridge across River Main. (Alte Mainbrücke)

Between 8.15 a.m. and 4.20 p.m. further stones will be laid for Jewish victims and those of the so-called “euthanasia programme”.

The subject of the evening event in the Blaue Halle at 7 p.m. will be “Made visible – the fates of Queers as a reflection of their time” in cooperation with the local theatre, Mainfrankentheater, and the wufzentrum, the centre for gay men and women in Würzburg. The evening will feature scenes showing the lives of gay people during and after the Nazi regime and a contribution from the choir, Sotto Voce.
