These memorial stones (so called Stolpersteine of stumbling blocks) commemorate:
Margot Rosenblum (born 1917, murdered in Minsk)
Ingeborg Paula Schulz (born 1912, murdered in Minsk)
Hildegard Rosenblum (born 1917, murdered in Lodz)
Gertrud Taeger (born 1916, murdered in Lodz)
Paul Günther Rosenblum (born 1919, murdered in Minsk)
Ursula Neumann (born 1922, murdered in Lodz)
Siegfried Rosenblum (born 1886, murdered in Minsk)
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.
