I had this Stolpersteine for my mother's uncle, my Opa Karl's brother, placed in the approximate location of Frankestrasse 17, Halle/Saale. This is also where my mother's family lived. The building was bombed in the war.

English translation of the dedication for the tripping stone for Julius Pfifferling.
Josef Pfifferling, called Julius (1883 - 1938)
Josef Pfifferling, named Julius, came from Wanfried. He had three brothers and three sisters. In World War I he served as a soldier. Later he ran with his brother Karl, a cattle and horse action in the road Franke Hall. 1936 or 1937 the business had top be resolved. Under the "work-shy Action Empire" was Julius Pfifferling 25 April 1938 interned in Buchenwald Concentration Camp. He died there on 16 May 1938. He was officially "shot while trying to escape". Julius Pfifferling wife Dorthea managed to escape from Germany. You probably first came to Shanghai and later to England. Of his siblings only brother, Karl survived the Second World War. He succeeded in 1939 to escape to the United States.

From the website for Stolpersteine in Halle/Saale:

Here lived

Julius Pfifferling

Where today the rise to the No.12 of a GDR-Plattenbau is located, stood before a house with the counting number 17. It was dwelling-house and seat of the "cattle-action S. Pfifferling". After the death of Sender Pfifferling, his four sons continued the business. One of the seven siblings was the Julius ("Jule") Pfifferling, German soldier in the First World War, born on 21 June 1883 in Wanfried / Hesse. His niece Hildegard Samenfeld (1922-2008, USA) describes him as a friendly, gentle person who liked to meet with some friends in a nearby pub for the card game. In 1933, the livestock business was excluded from the "Mitteldeutsche Verein des Pferdehandels" ("Middle-German Association of Horse Trading"). After 1937, the Pfifferling brothers had to stop their livestock trade. On April 25, 1938, Julius Pfifferling was one of the 13 Halle Jews, who were arrested in the context of the "ASR-Aktion" and taken to Buchenwald concentration camp. The Jews were to be moved by embarrassing allegedly "working-class" to the departure from Germany. Julius Pfifferling received in Buchenwald the prisoner number 2870 and had to work in the quarry. Three weeks after the delivery, the 54-year-old was "shot dead" on 16 May 1938. His widow Dorothea emigrated to Shanghai in 1939 and later to England.

Lotte, Bertold, and Marion Steinberg were in South France. Hans Pfifferling, Opa's nephew tried to get papers for them so that they could come to America. Aunt Lore said that Opa Karl also worked on getting the papers but did not say anything at the time so as not to get anyone's hopes up. Hans managed to get the papers, but unfortunately, too late, the 3 of them were taken in France and deported to Auschwitz, where they died.

Julius Rosenberg and Louis Rosenberg were brothers. He came with his wife Mrs. Paula to Siegen, Sandstrasse 83 (today no. 167) in the year 1905. Here he had a Cattle Business.
They had 3 children: Alice Johanna Pese born Rosenberg (born 1905) married to Kurt Pese (1900-1951) immigrated to and lived in Baltimore/USA. Rudolf Alexander Rosenberg (born 17.01.1906) in Siegen married to Elfriede born Haber (born 14.08.1918) immigrated to Santiago de Chile on 18.11.1939.The dates of their deaths are unknown.

A Memory for the young/and children that were deported from Chemnitz and area.
In the Siegerländer National Newspaper was on 12.11.1936 a very dirty article about Julius Rosenberg with the title" How a Siegener Jew treats his house employee bad" and the next day his son Rudolf was in the newspaper for some verbal fight in the traffic.
(on the main page, please see: Rosenbergs / From the Siegen Gedenkbuch & the Siegerländer National Paper)

Before their deportation on 27th of July 1942, Mr. and Mrs. Rosenberg and Louis Rosenberg had a long goodbye, for now, talk with their neighbor Charlotte Wildtraut, she was then 20 years old. In the early 30´s she was the babysitter for Marion. When the situation for the jews became worse Paula called the young neighbor and told her not to greet them (if they met on the streets) because she could get in big troubles if she did. Charlotte Wildtraut knew that the Businessman Albert Juncker married to the jew Jenny born Kahn, he bought a part of the property owned by Julius. It gave Julius and Family the opportunity to survive.
Julius and Paula were deported from Theresienstadt and sent to death in Treblinka.
After the sentence in The synagogue process in Autumn 1948, Alice Pese wrote the Court in Siegen and asked for that all the leading Nazi to be brought to justice.The supreme Court sent Alice an article from the newspaper (about how it ended).
