Stumbling Stones Silberberger Straße 7

These memorial stones (so called Stolpersteine of stumbling blocks) commemorate:
Vilma Hirschler (born 1878, suicide on 24-9-1942)
Moritz Hirschler (born 1864, died on 21-9-1940)
Margarete Philippi (born 1906, murdered in Auschwitz)
Ida Philippi (born 1868, died on 27-10-1941)

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.
