Stumbling Stones August-Krogmann-Straße 100

These memorial stones (so called Stolpersteine of stumbling blocks) commemorate:
Gustav Remi (born 1905, murdered in Neuengamme on 11-3-1943)
Ludwig Döpking (born 1881, suicide on 3-10-1936)
Richard Elkeles (born 1906, murdered in Zuchthaus Fuhlsbüttel on 12-3-1941)
Martin Lentfer (born 1875, suicide on 3-1-1938)

The small brass plaques, in the pavement in front of houses of which the (mostly Jewish) residents were persecuted or 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.
