Stolpersteine - like the Nazi atrocities whose victims they
commemorate - are not only in Germany; nor indeed not only in
German-speaking countries.

We should draw a distinction between automated edits such as bulk
imports, and simple fixes, or 1:1 swaps like Wikipedia-> Wikidata

The Lunar Society Moonstones are a single artwork comprising eight
objects around the perimeter of a single site (and very local to where
I live; I watched them being carved, talked with the artists, and
wrote and illustrated the Wikipedia article). And I first mapped them.
They should be in relation, which I shall do now.
