Lothar Weiss commemorated Lina and Heinz Neumark, family members of his wife. The words he spoke about his late wife Susanne Weiss and her family were very touching.

The third Station, in Edelhofgasse 21, is due to the initiative of Maria Wagner. When researching the history of the building, she came across Alfred and Rudolfine Fischer. Hermine Färber, another former tenant, was found through research by the Association Stones of Remembrance.
