Stumbling Stones Sokolovská 449/128

These memorial stones (so called Stolpersteine of stumbling blocks) commemorate:
David Süssmann (born 1893, murdered in Auschwitz)
Markéta Süssmannová (born 1900, murdered in Auschwitz in 1944)

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.
