Stumbling Stones Lutherstraße 9

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

* Salomon Hofmann, born 1869, deported 1942 Theresienstadt, murdered 1944 in Auschwitz.
* Frieda Hofmann née Plant, born 1885, deported 1942 Theresienstadt, murdered 1944 in Auschwitz.

The small brass 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 Jena (in German).
