Painter: “Yeah, I was thinking about a conversation I had last night with historians, and these were young historians who had gotten their PhDs at North Carolina, Chapel Hill. And one woman said that her activism was to take walking tours, and Catherine mentioned the Stolpersteine. Those don’t exist, and they should exist in the U.S. There should be a stone that makes you stumble and remember what is no longer there”(39-40). Note Stolpersteine are the stumbling stones placed around Germany and other countries where Nazis committed atrocities. The act of missing ones’ footing, hence stumbling, reminds people of what awful things occurred at these particular places.
