These memorial stones (so called Stolpersteine of stumbling blocks) commemorate:
Barend Wonder (born 1885, murdered in Sobibor on 2-4-1943)
Emma Mietje Wonder-Menko (born 1893, murdered in Sobibor on 2-4-1943)
Jacob Abraham Wonder (born 1926, murdered in Sobibor on 2-4-1943)
Kaatje Wonder (born 1922, murdered in Sobibor on 2-4-1943)
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.
