These memorial stones (so called Stolpersteine of stumbling blocks) commemorate:
Jenny Fleischer-Alt (born 1863, suicide in 1942)
Edith Gál (born 1888, suicide in 1942)
Ilka Gál (born 1867, died in 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.
Note: on the house where the Stolpersteine are in front of there is also a plaque attached (photo 2).
