Louis Samuel

*22.03.1902 in Honnef

Louis Samuel lived with his wife at Von-Schildeck-Strasse 6.

On November 10, 1938, he was arrested during Kristallnacht and deported to Buchenwald. After his release and the failed escape to another country, he was deported from Fulda to Riga on December 8, 1941. After two years in the ghetto, he was “evacuated” to the Stutthof concentration camp. There he was murdered in the Burggraben subcamp on December 31, 1944.

As student group, we would like to remember the murdered people in particular on their birthdays, starting in February 2021. With many victims we do not know when they were torn from life, but on a birthday we can think specifically of this one person and show him or her and the families that this person has not been forgotten.

For this reason we label a stone with the name and the birthday. Sometimes we’re even lucky enough to have a photo of the person so we can look into his and her eyes.

We do not forget you!
