Stumbling Stones Nordweg 64

These memorial stones (so called Stolpersteine of stumbling blocks) commemorate:
Erich Wolff (born 1878, murdered in Warschau)
Lina Adele Wolff (born 1882, murdered in Warschau)
Helene Margarete Wolff (born 1920, murdered in Warschau)
Helmut Wolff (born 1914, escaped)
Paul Wolff (born 1917, escaped)

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 Oranienburg (in German).
