The authorities in Munich have begun installing new Holocaust memorials to replace brass cobblestone reminders of the Nazis’ victims.
The cobblestones are considered disrespectful by Bavarian Jewish leader Charlotte Knobloch and some other critics, mainly because they get dirty and are trodden on.
They also exist in more than 1,000 places in Europe.
In Munich they are being replaced with new plaques and steles.
These are being installed at the last known addresses of Holocaust victims. However this initiative is so far only taking place in Munich.
