Stumbling Stones Palmstraße 13

These memorial stones (so called Stolpersteine of stumbling blocks) commemorate:
Ilse Bravmann (born 1923, suicide on 12-9-1942)
Jakob Bravmann (born 1885, suicide on 26-8-1942)
Arthur Bravmann (born 1925, suicide on 15-2-1942)
Anna Bravmann (born 1884, suicide on 12-9-1942)
Adolf Hamburger (born 1876, murdered in Kaunas on 25-11-1941)

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 Frankfurt am Main (in German).
