Stumbling Stones Klopstockstraße 1
These memorial-stones (so-called Stolpersteine of stumbling blocks) commemorate:
Bina Marx (born 1878, murdered in Auschwitz on 15-5-1944)
Julius Marx (born 1873, murdered in Theresienstadt on 17-3-1943)
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.
For more information and pictures, please visit Stolpersteine Wiesbaden (in German).
