Stumbling over the past #1904

There’s an excellent article in the current issue of Intelligent Life about  Stolpersteine (“stumbling stones”) – brass plates set into pavements around Germany (and in some other European countries) to commemorate victims of National Socialism.

Ernst Cantor lived in Breidenbacher Straße 19, just off the Gaustrasse.

This is his Stolperstein.
