Long Description:
This memorial stone is located on a small place at the road down from the cathedral of Breisach. It is a small square sandstone block with carvings. It was erected in 2004 on the 64th anniversary of the deportation. The original stone was cut in two pieces; one was erected here, the other one was brought to Neckarzimmern to be part of a central Holocaust memorial, together with similarly cut half memorial stones from about 100 municipalities of southern Germany.

The plaque says:"Zur Erinnerung an die Breisacher Juden, die am 22. Oktober 1940 zusammen mit allen badischen, pfälzischen und saarländischen Juden in das Lager Gurs in den französischen Pyrenäen deportiert wurden.

Die Vergangenheit können wir nicht ändern. Aber die Zukunft liegt in unserer Hand.
