Stumbling Stones Via Nazionale 87

These memorial stones (Stolpersteine, pietre d'inciampo, or stumbling blocks) commemorate:
* Beniamino Di Cori, born 1879, arrested 23 April 1944, deported to Auschwitz, assassinated 30 June 1944.

Little information was found on Beniamino Di Cori. He was an officer with an honorary title (Cav. Uff). He was married to Letizia Di Cori, but information on her fate was not found. Of their four children, fates are unknown for three and daughter Nella Fornari lived to the age of 103. He was called grandfather "Mimmo" by his grandchildren

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.
