Sight 5: Irma Borchardt

Show sight on map

The list of thinking and stumbling blocks in Rostock contains the tables embedded in the ground in the Hanseatic city of Rostock, which are reminiscent of the fate of the people who were murdered, deported, driven out or driven into suicide. As in the Gunter stumbling block project, the stones are in front of the victim's houses or places of activity, but are in no direct context with the desigly work. The stones have been laid in Rostock on the initiative of the friends and sponsors of the Max Samuel House since 2000. They consist of larger stone slabs that have traces of breaking and abrasion. After Demig did not agree to the further use of the originally used term "stumbling block", the stones laid since 2016 are referred to as "thinking stones". The new stones were given a different look and are more weather -resistant than those relocated until 2016.

Sight 6: Fischerbastion

Show sight on map

The Rostock city fortification enclosed the city of Rostock since the middle of the 13th century. After the original city nuclei of the three Rostock sub cities had officially united in a city in 1265, the common, about three kilometers long city wall was built, which had more than 20 city gates. These were distinguished in "land" and "beach goals", depending on whether they led to the Mecklenburg hinterland or the city harbor on Unterwarnow.
