Gustav Landauer is Notable.

One of the leading theorists on anarchism in Germany. The second child of Jewish parents Rosa (Neuberger) and Herman Landauer, a shoe shop owner in Karlsruhe in the Grand Duchy of Baden. His second wife, Hedwig Lachmann, married in 1903, was an accomplished translator.

Landauer was arrested on 1 May 1919 and stoned to death by troopers one day later in Munich's Stadelheim Prison. After the Nazis were elected in Germany in 1933, they destroyed Landauer's grave, which had been erected in 1925, and sent his remains to the Jewish congregation of Munich, charging them for the costs. Landauer was later laid to rest at the Munich Waldfriedhof (Forest Cemetery).
