These memorial stones (so called Stolpersteine of stumbling blocks) commemorate:
Louis Hahn (born 1901, murdered in Minsk)
Rita Hahn (born 1914, murdered in Minsk)
Eli Hahn (born 1940, murdered in Minsk)
Alfred Levy (born 1894, murdered in Minsk)
Hildegard Levy (born 1904, murdered in Minsk)
Werner Levy (born 1931, murdered in Minsk)
Ludwig Cobliner (born 1888, murdered in Neuengamme)
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.
For more information and pictures, please visit Stolpersteine Bremen (in German).
