Sponsor: Nuremberg Doctors Association Laying of stone: 18 September 2015


On 18 September 2015 Nuremberg doctors had stumbling stones laid in memory of former Jewish colleagues. These included the paediatrician Dr. Ignatz Steinhardt and his family.

Ignatz Steinhardt was born on 17 November 1869 in Floss in the Upper Palatinate. He studied medicine and obtained his Doctor of Medicine degree. Initially he worked as a paediatrician in Berlin, before moving to Nuremberg in April 1896 and opening a surgery at Bucher Strasse 10. In addition, Steinhardt was a municipal school-physician and was appointed as a medical consultant.

He married Henriette Johanna Wertheimer. Henriette was born on 26 February 1882 in Bad Homburg vor der Höhe. On 18 March 1905 their daughter Pauline was born in Nuremberg, daughter Dorothea on 11 January 1912.

Dr. Ignatz Steinhardt died on 2 January 1933. From 1939 onwards his widow was forced to live in various Jewish houses in the city, her last address being Tuchergartenstraße 15. From there, she was deported to the Izbica ghetto on 24 March 1942, where all trace of her disappears.

Pauline and Dorothea studied medicine and dentistry respectively. They emigrated to Italy in 1934 and two years later, from Italy to Palestine.
