Stumbling Stone Gronausestraat 1076
This memorial-stone (so-called Stolperstein or stumbling block) commemorates Rosa de Swaan-Frankenhuis, murdered on 14 May 1943 in Sobibor. She was the last of the five Jewish residents of Glanerbrug.
The small copper plaques, 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.
