Strul (Srael) Nemeth and Sura (Sara) Sabovitch married, moved to Belgium and had 3 children: Frieda, Jules-Gilles and Emile. Blanca Sabovic-Ova, Sura’s sister, came to live with them in 1937. At the end of July 1942, Blanca received a summons for forced labor and she went to Mechelen/Malines transit camp, from which she was deported on 4 August 1942 to Auschwitz. From that time, the family avoided spending nights at their home. Frieda went to a children’s colony where she was to stay a few days until her brothers collected her.

Instead, her brothers and parents were all arrested, sent to Mechelen/Malines and deported on 26 September to Auschwitz. Only Frieda survived because she was hidden and protected until the end of the war by non-Jewish families.

"Stolpersteine" is an art project for Europe by Gunter Demnig to commemorate victims of National Socialism (Nazism). Stolpersteine (stumbling stones) are small, 10x10cm brass plaques placed in the pavement in front of the last voluntary residence of (mostly Jewish) victims who were murdered by the Nazis. Each plaque is engraved with the victim’s name, date of birth and place (mostly a concentration camp) and date of death. By doing this, Gunter Demnig gives an individual memorial to each victim. One stone, one name, one person. He cites the Talmud: "A human being is forgotten only when his or her name is forgotten."
