Stumbling Stones Bürgermeisterstraße 4 (previously no. 7)

These memorial stones (so called Stolpersteine of stumbling blocks) commemorate:
Fritz Schuster (born 1883, faith unknown)
Josefa Klara Karola Schuster (born 1896, faith unknown)
Hermann Schuster (born 1923, faith unknown)
Eva Schuster (born 1925, faith unknown)
Inge Marta Schuster (born 1928, faith unknown)

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 Brandenburg (in German).
