STOLPERSTEINE, STONES OF REMEMBRANCE



Stolpersteine for Family Durlacher



Stolpersteine, Stumbling stones, are the Holocaust memorial which is built one stone at a time.

Small 'memory' blocks embedded in sidewalks in front of homes where its victims last lived freely, simple memorials documenting their lives with the barest of details.

These Stolpersteine are for Family Durlacher from Heidelberg, Hermann, Marta and their sons Walter and Ludwig, and lie in front of what was their home.

Hermann and Marta were murdered in Auschwitz, their sons survived.

The boys had been sent to England in 1939 by Kindertransport, a rescue mission for unaccompanied children under 17 which took place during the nine months prior to the outbreak of WWII.

And the "Words Of The Week" are a description none of us really wants to hear being used to describe ourselves..........except when it is said in fun, which it often is.

Du hast (wohl) nicht alle Tassen im Schrank.

You don't have all your cups in the cupboard

which is a round about way of inferring a certain lack of mental stability.
