On 22 May 2004 Gunter Demnig laid the first stumbling stones in Nuremberg. These included a stone for Martin Selling, who was murdered in Auschwitz.
Martin Selling was born on 7 October 1893 in Nuremberg. His parents were the trader Josef Selling and his wife Julia (née Neuburger). Martin had two sisters: Paula (born on 8 November 1891) and Meta (born on 5 January 1905).
On 17 March 1943 Martin was deported from Berlin to Theresienstadt concentration camp. From there he was brought to Auschwitz concentration camp on 29 September 1944, where he was murdered.
