Stumbling Stones Leonhardstraße 1

These memorial stones (so called Stolpersteine of stumbling blocks) commemorate:
Felix Hamburger (born 1896, fled out of Germany)
Luise Hamburger (born 1903, fled out of Germany)
Martin Hamburger (born 1928, fled out of Germany)
Edith Hamburger (born 1931, fled out of Germany)

The small copper plaques, in the pavement in front of houses of which the (mostly Jewish) residents were murdered by the Nazis, mention the name, date of birth and place (mostly a concentration camp) and date of death.

In many other cities, 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.

For more information and pictures, please visit Stolpersteine Braunschweig (in German).
