Not Even One Year

Stolperstein, stumbling block, remembering Franca Baruch, Livorno
At first I thought it was a mistake in the writing on the stolperstein, but it wasn't: when Franca was “arrested”, deported and killed she wasn't even one year old.

Beyond tragic.

This is so pathetic a testament to the worst in "humanity." I'm glad Franca has a memorial to remind us all.

Yehi zichra baruch, may her memory be blessed.

Makes me wonder if there will be soon a need for new Stolpersteine.

Sad and horrible in 1944!!

(The same now in Syria and many other places.
What have we learned, and is it true that we get the politicians we deserve??)
