The plaque was unveiled by the industrialists grandaughter, Jutta Barckmann from Hamburg.

Emil Stoewer’s factory produced typewriters, sewing machines and then (from 1899) motor cars. After the Second World War, the factory was used to produce motorcycles and then automobile parts under the name ‘Polmo’. The former Polmo building, now disused, still stands on al Wojska Polskiego.
