Stumbling Stones Rainerstraße 4

These memorial stones (so called Stolpersteine of stumbling blocks) commemorate:
Natalie Rosenthal (born 1885, murdered in Riga in 1942)
Daniel Bonyhadi (born 1863, died on 5-11-1939)
Ludwig Bonyhadi (born 1899, murdered in Nisko)
Gertrude Bonyhadi (born 1905, murdered in Bergen-Belsen on 1-5-1945)
Edgar Bonyhadi (born 1888, murdered in Maly Trostinec on 28-5-1942)
Anna Pollak (born 1873, murdered in Treblinka)
Dr. Johann Langer (born 1878, murdered in Dachau on 12-10-1938)

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.
