Stones of Stumbling


On my way to teaching an English lesson at a company in town, I found these brass plaques in the pavement outside Rosenaustraße, 10. I've never seen such plaques anywhere in Germany before. I'm sure I would have noticed. I'd love to know who had them put there. There ought to be far more of them, dotted all over the pavements of Nuremberg and everywhere else. These were two Jewish sisters, Emma 72, born in 1870 and Fora Gaertner, 70, born in 1872, who were deported to Theresianstadt and murdered there under Hitler's 'Final Solution'.
