Dina and Dino

Stolpersteine, stumbling blocks, remembering Dina Bona Attal and Dino Bueno, Livorno
A few days ago two Stolpersteine (stumbling stones) have been placed in Via della Coroncina, where once lived the 44-year-old Dina Bona Attal and her 21-year-old son Dino Bueno. They were arrested near Lucca in December 1943 and both died in Auschwitz.

This is a very special and nice way to memorialize these two victims of the Nazi terror!

Didn't know about Stolpersteine. Thanks for letting me know.

Particularly poignant considering what's happening in France now. Surely we will not go down that path again.

I agree with William, very poignant.

Sad these two people died because of bigotry and stupidity, and intolerance. Unfortunately people are still dying because of religious hatred and intolerance.

Me being Dina and my grandson named Dean, your post really jumped out at me, VP.

Heard on the radio that some Stolpersteine were badly vandalized somewhere in Europe a few days ago. Maybe "in honor" of today's International Holocaust Remembrance Day?

Stolpersteine are a beautiful way of remembering and also of explaining to kids... And perfect post for today. If only 1919 and 1933 hadn't happened...

It is a shame that memorials like this are needed. Man's inhumanity to man.
