Biographies

On 22 May 2004 Gunter Demnig laid the first stumbling stones in Nuremberg. These included stumbling stones for Eva and Bella Neufeld, who were murdered in Izbica and Treblinka.

Eva Zimmer was born on 26 November 1873 in Fürth. Her parents were Maurie Zimmer and his wife Lina (née Wormser). In November 1900 she married Adolf Neufeld. Adolf was born on 15 March 1874 in Lackenbach. At the time, Lackenbach belonged to the Kingdom of Hungary. Today it is part of Austria.

At the end of June 1902 the couple moved to Nuremberg, when Adolf took over the position of cantor in the newly-opened synagogue of the orthodox “Adas Israel” society. The couple had seven children, including daughter Bella, born on 9 September 1909. Adolf Neufeld died on 31 August 1923.

Of the seven children, eventually only Bella remained with her mother. Bella was deported to the Izbica ghetto on 24 March 1942 and murdered. Eva was deported to Theresienstadt concentration camp on 10 September 1942. She was murdered in Treblinka concentration camp, after being moved there on 29 September.
