① memo 20160415 ~ Gouda Polak Family ~ I stumbled across more stumbling stones (Stolpersteine) May 2014 in the sidewalk before Fluwelensingel 33 in Gouda where in 1942 the dutch family Henri Polak lived – Henri (optician) , his wife Henriëtte, and son Arnold (optician) when they were deported and killed in Auschwitz and Mauthausen that year. Also by chance I spoke the current occupant in front of his house – just returning from shopping in town – who told me they had had a little jewelery shop at the central Market Square (‘Markt’) in Gouda.
