Sponsors: Hubert Rottner Defet, Thommy Barth and others. Laying of stone: 22 May 2004


On 22 May 2004 Gunter Demnig laid the first stumbling stones in Nuremberg. These included stumbling stones for Clothilde and Elisabeth Rindskopf, who were murdered in Auschwitz.

Clothilde Deutsch was the daughter of councillor of commerce Eugen Deutsch and his wife Fanni (née Loewi). She was born on 19 June 1880 in Mußbach near Neustadt an der Weinstraße, where her father had founded the “South German Metalware Factory” (“Süddeutsche Metallwarenfabrik”). It produced household appliances and kitchen utensils.

On 2 September 1907 Clothilde married the circuit judge Sigmund Rindskopf. Sigmund was born on 23 February 1873 in Nuremberg. Initially the couple lived in Pirmasens, but they moved to Nuremberg in 1914, when Sigmund was promoted to the position of associate judge at the regional court.

The couple had two daughters: Gertrud (born 16 May 1910) and Elisabeth (born 10 May 1915). Both became nursery school teachers.

Sigmund died on 20 November 1925. Gertrud married Ludwig Auerbach in June 1935 und lived with him in Mannheim. Elisabeth remained single and lived with her mother.

On 16 June 1943 Clothilde and Elisabeth were deported to Auschwitz and murdered there.
