Benjamin Gelhorn, the last living survivor of the World War II-era Concentration Camp Echterdingen, leads a group past the "Ways to Remember" memorial wall June 8 with his escort, followed by Filderstadt's Lord Mayor Gabriele Doenig-Poppensieker, USAG Stuttgart Commander Col. Richard M. Pastore, Command Sgt. Maj. Anthony M. Bryant and others after the dedication ceremony of the Jewish memorial, which is located next to Stuttgart Army Airfield in Echterdingen. Some 119 Jewish detainees in the camp died during the winter of 1944/45. The memorial walls contain a sound system articulating the names of the 600 Jewish detainees of the concentration camp.
