Stumbling Stones Grote Noord 77

These small, brass, memorial plaques (Stolpersteine, struikelstenen, or stumbling stones) commemorate:

* Sara Vleeschdraager-Jacobs, born 1887, deported 1943 from Westerbork, vermoord 28 May 1943, Sobibor.
* Leonardus Herman Yzak Vleeschdraager, born 1924, deported 1943 from Westerbork, vermoord 2 July 1943, Sobibor.

"Stolpersteine" is an art project for Europe by Gunter Demnig to commemorate victims of National Socialism (Nazism). Stolpersteine (stumbling stones) are small, 10x10cm brass plaques placed in the pavement in front of the last voluntary residence of (mostly Jewish) victims who were murdered by the Nazis. Each plaque is engraved with the victimís name, date of birth, and place (mostly a concentration camp) and date of death. By doing this, Gunter Demnig gives an individual memorial to each victim. One stone, one name, one person. He cites the Talmud: "A human being is forgotten only when his or her name is forgotten."
