Alfred & Pauline (geb Gutmann) Katzenstein: Eisleben

There are stolpersteine for Oma Julchen's first cousin Pauline & her husband, who was Opa Karl's first cousin, Alfred Katzenstein in Eisleben, Germany. It was Alfred & Pauline who introduced my grandparents to each other.
At the web page for Eisleben there are no photos of the stones for the Katzensteins. They are placed in front of their former residence, Geiststrasse 6, which is shown here.
