Stumbling Stones Spoorlaan 22
(Netherlands, the - North Brabant - Oss)
These memorial-stones (so-called Stolpersteine of stumbling blocks) commemorate:
Simon van Os, Dina van Os-Hes, Henri Marc van Os, Sem van Os, Rosa Anna van Os, Sona van Os, Albert van Os, Roosje van Os-Simons
, murdered or disappeared in Auschwitz, Sobibor and Glächownia.
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 cities, mainly in Germany, 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.
