A central theme of this film is the power and importance of remembrance. In the Jewish tradition, as long as a person is remembered they continue to live.”

— Michael Potter, Executive Producer

LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA, USA, June 8, 2024 /EINPresswire.com/ — The heartfelt and beautifully shot short form documentary “Tracks: Stumbling Stones Amsterdam,” just finished up at the Berlin Art Film Festival and is an official selection at The Fine Arts Film Festival, Venice, California. Tracks is Directed by Maclovia Martel, and Produced by Michael Potter, and Margaret McCarthy of Free Radical Productions.

Tracks explores the laying of “Stolpersteine” memorial stones honoring Holocaust victims, installed in front of the homes along the central canals in Amsterdam. According to Executive Producer, Michael Potter: “A central theme of this film is the power and importance of remembrance. In the Jewish tradition, as long as a person is remembered they continue to live.”

The central canal area of Amsterdam is recognized as one of the most beautiful neighborhoods in the world. Even in times of joy and celebration we are urged to momentarily acknowledge tragedy in both the past and the present. These stones serve to provide a small tear of sorrow next to the grand and historic architecture of the canals.

“Tracks,” takes viewers on a journey to uncover the spirit and intention behind the Stolpersteine, small brass memorial stones that commemorate the victims of the Holocaust. The film, explores the impact of the Stolpersteine on communities and families, and how they serve as a powerful reminder.

The Stolpersteine, which literally means “stumbling stones,” are small brass plaques that are embedded in the ground in front of the former homes of victims. To date, over 100,000 Stolpersteine have been installed in more than 1,000 cities across Europe, making it the largest decentralized memorial in the world.

The filmmakers of “Tracks” have worked with Alexander Stukenberg, the key subject of the film and the Stichting Stolpersteine foundation in Amsterdam to create a YouTube channel available to all video and film content creators who have created stories related to stolpersteine memorial stones. This vision is an open platform for everyone to capture and share the amazing stories and impact behind each of these stones.

“Tracks” features interviews with historians, survivors, and descendants of victims, and those that selflessly carry out the creation and placement of these stones.

This powerful documentary is a must-see for anyone looking to deepen their understanding of remembrance and the impact on individuals and communities.

We hope this film inspires others to adopt a canal or adopt a street to sponsor the installation of stolpersteine memorial stones.
