Graz is a university town, caters for an international audience and is on the whole quite laid back and philosophical. The signs throughout the place often speak for themselves.
Graz is also aware of its role in history. The international project Stolpersteine serves to remember people who lived in the houses in front of which the stones are laid and suffered under the Nazis. In this particular case, the members of the Gertler family fled and were not murdered.
