Stumbling Stones Glockenhofstraße 28

This Stumbling Stone / Stolperstein commemorates:

* Mathilde Guggenheim-Veit, born 1889, deported 1941 Lodz / Litzmannstadt, murdered 1942 in Chelmno / Kulmhof.

Mathilde Veit was married to Karl Guggenheim (10 years older). Both were born in Baden-Wurttenburg, but no other information about them was found except for the names of his parents and siblings, two of whom died before WW1.

The plaque below the window of this building says in old Gothic script: W. Mayer - Porzellan Manufaktur (Porcelain Manufacturer).

"Stolpersteine" is an art project for Europe by Gunter Demnig to commemorate victims of National Socialism (Nazism). Stolpersteine (stumbling stones) are small, 10x10cm 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."
