Hedwig Luft, née Heymann (1879 - ?) was born in Stolp (Pommerania). She was the proprietor of the shop "Luft & Rosenow, Manufakturwaren" at Theaterstraße 6. She was widowed and lived from 1941 at Wollenweberstraße 60 (the "Jews' House"). There she shared a room with five other people.
In 2007 Stumbling Stones were laid at Karl-Marx-Straße 10 in memory of her daughter Else, Else's husband Kurt Fellert, and Hedwig's two grandchildren, Rita and Lothar Fellert.
Hedwig Luft was deported to the Warsaw Ghetto in 1942. Three months later, the Finance President of Brandenburg in Berlin sold her furniture and other personal possessions. Her son Günter lived in Zepernick and Berlin, and emigrated to France.
From there he was deported to the extermination camp at Auschwitz in 1942.
