Stumbling Stones Alt-Rödelheim 38

These memorial stones (so called Stolpersteine of stumbling blocks) commemorate:
Martha Grünebaum (born 1897, murdered)
Max Grünebaum (born 1895, murdered in Majdanek on 29-8-1942)
Kurt Grünebaum (born 1927, murdered in Majdanek on 29-8-1942)

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.

For more information and pictures, please visit Stolpersteine Frankfurt am Main (in German).
