Czech Republic / Monument
The three Stolpersteine (“stumbling stone” or “stones of the disappeared”) located outside of house Nr. 6 sady Pětatřicátníků commemorate the three members of the Fanta family: Adolf Fanta, Hana Fantová, and Regina Fantová who were deported to Theresienstadt Ghetto (Terezin, Czechia) in 1942 before being murdered in Izbica (Poland).
The three Stoplersteine outside of house No. 6 sady Pětatřicátníků are inscribed with the names of the Fanta family:
Adolf Fanta was born in 1889, deported to Terezin 1942, murdered in 1942 in Izbica.
Hana Fantová was born in 1923, deported to Terezin 1942, murdered in 1942 in Izbica.
Regina Fantová was born in 1887, deported to Terezin 1942, murdered in 1942 in Izbica.
These Stoplersteine are three of more than 75,000 to be installed in 26 countries across Europe. The project was started by German artist Gunter Demnig with the aim of commemorating the victims of the Holocaust and persecution by the Nazi totalitarian regime. Each stone is made out of brass and is placed in the pavement outside of the victims home or place of work. They inscribed with the name, date of birth, deportation date, and date of death.
