In Memorium
Dei Nostri cari inquilini di questro palazzo di via dei Giubbonari 30
Vittime della barbarie Nazi-Fascista
Nei Campi di Stermino ed alle Fosse Ardeatine

In memory of our dear tenants of this building at Via dei Giubbonari 30, victims of Nazi-fascist barbarism, in the death camps and at the Fosse Ardeatine:
Davide Limentani, Angelo Tagliacozzo, Settimio Limentani, Angelo Limentani, Sami Modiano.

Angelo Tagliacozzo was arrested in May, then deported to Auschwitz in June 1944. At some point he was transported further to Dachau, where he died in early 1945.

Davide Limentani and his son Angelo Limentani were killed; his other son Settimio Limentani survived Auschwitz.

Sami Modiano was arrested in July 1944, arrived in Auschwitz in August 1944 and survived until liberation on 27 January 1945.

"Stolpersteine" is an art project for Europe by Gunter Demnig to commemorate victims of National Socialism (Nazism). Stolpersteine (stumbling stones) are small brass plaques placed in the pavement in front of the last voluntary residence of (mostly Jewish) victims who were murdered by the Nazis. Each plaque is engraved with the victim’s name, date of birth and place (mostly a concentration camp) and date of death. By doing this, Gunter Demnig gives an individual memorial to each victim. One stone, one name, one person. He cites the Talmud: "A human being is forgotten only when his or her name is forgotten."
