The Neuburger Family

Location of stone: Lohengrinstrasse 13 District: Gleisshammer
Sponsor: 1. FC Nürnberg (Nuremberg Football Club) Laying of stone: 30 April 2023


On 30 April 2023, following an initiative by the Nuremberg Football Club, three stumbling stones were laid in memory of Hedwig, Kurt and Hilde Neuburger, in front of the house at Lohengrinstrasse 13. Hedwig was murdered in Riga-Jungfernhof. Both her children were able to flee abroad.

On 30 April 1933, the Nuremberg Football Club expelled all its Jewish members. A total of 142 men and women were affected, many of whom had rendered great service to the club. On the 90th anniversary of this event, the Nuremberg Football Club, in co-operation with the history society Geschichte Für Alle (History for Everyone), laid three stumbling stones for Hedwig Neuburger and her children Kurt and Hilde in front of the house at Lohengrinstrasse 13. Hedwig had played tennis at the club and Kurt had participated in track and field athletics.

Hedwig was born on 17 May 1892. Her parents were the businessman Ernst Berlin and his wife Rosa (née Hanau). On 3 November 1913, she married the lawyer Dr Leopold Neuberger. Leopold was also born in Nuremberg. The couple had two children: Kurt, born on 1 November 1914, and Hilde, born on 14 November 1919.

Leopold Neuburger was the senior chairperson of the Nuremberg Football Club from 1912 until 1920. He served as an officer in the First World War and was badly wounded. He died on 25 April 1928 in Nuremberg.

After the death of her husband, Hedwig and her two children moved from Prinzregentenufer 3 to Lohengrinstrasse 13. On 27 November 1941, Hedwig was deported to Riga-Jungfernhof concentration camp and murdered there. Kurt Neuburger fled to London in October 1934. His sister fled first to Switzerland, arriving in London two years later.
