The memorial qualifies National Socialist crimes as genocide against Sinti and Roma, which was carried out with the same motive of racial madness, with the same intent and the same will of planned and final annihilation as against the Jews. The memorial on the Weizberg (2012) is a gesture to the victim generation. The design comes from Walter Kratner and shows the broken wheel axle of a freight wagon as a symbol of deportation and genocide. The theme of memory is supplemented by the “Porajmos” writing board. The term means "devouring" in the Sinti and Roma language and describes the National Socialist genocide of the European Roma, who are persecuted as "gypsies". The number of victims is unknown. According to different estimates, however, it has six digits for a wide range.
With the unfortunate situation in the world currently doesn't permit free movement of individuals, it also makes the movement of sculptures more difficult, as their creators cannot be present when the sculptures are set up. As a result, more and more events, exhibitions and festivals are postponed or cancelled entirely. Through this challenge, we wish to overcome the current limitations and enable the artists to enter already installed sculptures into our Sculpture Line exhibition, so that even more people can see and enjoy them.
