Stumbling Stones Hauptstraße 129

These memorial stones (so called Stolpersteine of stumbling blocks) commemorate:
Bernhard Meyer (born 1882, faith unknown)
Emmy Meyer (born 1893, murdered in Stutthof in 1945)
Edith Meyer (born 1920, murdered in Auschwitz in 1942)
Helga Meyer (born 1931, murdered in Stutthof)
Rosa Rebekka Meyer (born 1881, murdered in Theresienstadt in 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.
