Stumbling stone Kinderhuissingel 3, Haarlem
On April 14, 2022, a stumbling stone was placed here for Abraham Manheim. Abraham was a traveling pianist, he came from a musical family. On August 28, 1938 he married the non-Jewish Cornelia Bekker from Heemstede, they then went to live at the Kinderhuisvest 3. The couple has had no children. Cornelia survived the war. The house on Kinderhuisvest 3 has meanwhile been demolished to make way for a passageway.
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.
