Stolpersteine / Stumbling Stones commemorate:
* Edith Bartfeld née Landmann, born 1910, deported 1942, Izbica, murdered 24 March 1942.
* Gerda Bartfeld, born 1933, deported 1942, Izbica, murdered 24 March 1942.
Edith Landmann married David Bartfeld; Gerda was their daughter. The year after Gerda was born, the Nürnberg-Fürth police said David was a citizen of Poland and forced him to leave Bavaria and his family. In 1938, the "Polen Aktion" led to his arrest and his being sent to Poland. In 1939, he returned to his wife and daughter but was arrested only a month later and sent to Buchenwald for 2½ years. He was murdered in Bernberg in March 1942.
That same month, Bertha and Gerda were deported from Nürnberg to Izbica with 424 other Nürnberg residents. None survived the war.
A stolperstein for David Bartfeld is at Steinstraße 23, Staßfurt, Germany.
"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."
