Stumbling Stones Viktor-Scheffel-Straße 16

These memorial stones (so called Stolpersteine of stumbling blocks) commemorate:
Judith Ziegler (born 1864, murdered in Theresienstadt on 11-5-1943)
Janette Weiss (born 1871, murdered in Theresienstadt on 6-8-1942)
Julie Katharina Weiss (born 1901, murdered in Auschwitz)
Leopold Weiss (born 1899, murdered in Dachau on 20-6-1941)

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.
