Stumbling Stones Groeneweg 43
These memorial-stones (so-called Stolpersteine of stumbling blocks) commemorate:
Mozes van Tijn
Aron van Tijn
Marianne van Tijn
Judik van Tijn
, murdered or disappeared in the Holocaust.
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 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.
