Stumbling Stones Heessener Dorfstraße
These memorial-stones (so-called Stolpersteine of stumbling blocks), at the war memorial, commemorate Norbert and David Blumenthal, murdered or disappeared in the Holocaust.
The small copper plaques, normally in the pavement in front of houses of which the (mostly Jewish) residents were murdered by the Nazis, mention the name, date of birth and place (mostly a concentration camp) and date of death.
In many other German cities 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.
