We should not forget about those people who fought against fascism by the Wollweber Gruppe. A group of people of the International Brigades, seafarers, dockers and people of the ITF who fought together. They were people from Belgium, Holland, Germany, Denmark, Sweden and Norway.

Many of them died a horrific dead in Plötzensee or KZ Sachsenhausen.

There are almost no traces that have been left about those who fought against fascism by the Belgian Wollweber Gruppe. But some traces, some places where they lived are still there.

Places that deserve a memorial, a stolperstein to honour their fight for our freedom.
