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.
① memo 20160413 ~ Stumbling Stones ~ Walking in the Maiselova street in Josefov , the Jewish quarter of Prague ( Praha , Czech Republic ) on March 30 , 2012 , these three brass ‘stumbling stones’ (German : Stolpersteine) in the sidewalk caught my eye.
If you look closely, you will see the three names of Alois Bergmann, born 1899, his wife, Beila Bergmannová, born in 1897, and their 11-year old daughter Růžena Bergmannová, born 1931 – all deported in 1942 via the concentration camp in Theresienstadt (Terezín, Czech Republic) to the Baranoviči extermination camp (Belorussia) where they were murdered.
Stolpersteine (stumbling stones) is a project of the german artist Gunter Demnig to remember the victims of National Socialism by installing commemorative brass ‘stones’ in the pavement in front of their last address …
Today in the dutch city Maastricht another 24 stones were installed.
