Stumbling Stones Slijkstraat 20

These memorial stones (so called Stolpersteine of stumbling blocks) commemorate:
Levie Jacob Wonder (born 1887, murdered in Auschwitz on 7-9-1942)
Rosalie Mietje Wonder-Menko (murdered in Auschwitz on 7-9-1942)
Jacoba Wonder (born 1920, murdered in Auschwitz on 12-2-1943)
JoŽl Denneboom (born 1923, murdered in Auschwitz in 1942)

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.
