Stumbling Stone Bakenessergracht 43

Stolperstein Bakenessergracht 43, Haarlem

On April 14, 2022, a stumbling stone was placed here for Marie Roozendaal. She was married on May 15, 1913 in Amsterdam to Daniel de Jong. They were divorced on March 6, 1926. Daniel de Jong was also murdered in Auschwitz.
Marie and Daniel had two children together, who survived the war.

The small brass plaques of 10 by 10 cm, in the pavement in front of houses of which the (mostly Jewish) residents were persecuted and mostly murdered by the National-Socialists, mention the name, date of birth and place (mostly a concentration camp) and date of death.

In many other cities and villages, mainly in Germany but also in other European countries, the memorials also can be found. There are already many thousands of these plaques and their number is still counting. Almost all Stolpersteine are laid by the German artist himself, Gunter Demnig.
