Stumbling Stones Bismarckstraße 56

These memorial stones (so called Stolpersteine of stumbling blocks) commemorate:
Gertrud Lehmann (born 1924, murdered on 18-9-1942)
Flora Lehmann (born 1894, murdered on 31-8-1942)
Hermann Felik Lehmann (born 1889, murdered)
Hildegard Lehmann (born 1921, murdered)

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.
