Today we experienced a sad and emotional day.
My sister-in-law applied for the placing of three
in the city of Dordrecht
in front of the house where her and my husbands
grandfather, uncle and aunt
had last lived
before they were taken away
and killed in Auschwitz.
Her and my husband's and two brothers' mother Sofia
survived the war.
She had lived in that house with her father,
two brothers and sister,
their mother had died some years before the war.
She had married just before the war began
and had moved to Rotterdam
where she had her first son
Her oldest brother went into hiding
and survived too.
Her father, younger brother and sister
never came back.
the German artist and initiator of "Stolpersteine"
placed three little stones
in front of their last home :
for us and everyone else
Three great-grandchildren of Meijer De Liver
each gave a stone
which Gunter then put in the pavement
My sister-in-law held a short speech
and a friend finally
for Meijer, Mozes and Rosette
