Looking through 'stumble stones' (the 'official' translation seems to be 'stumbling block') for 'Cassirer' and there is one for Marion in Trier (reception by the mayor - big story in the local newspaper) and another at Xantener Strasse, where 8 stones were duged in. Stone # 6 is for 'LUCIE NOACK, GEB. (geborene, nee) FRIEDLÄNDER in 1891 (JG = Jahrgang), deported 9/5/1942 from freight terminal (Gueterbahnhof) Moabit to Riga and shot within 3 days at the age of 51.1

According to the list of deportations it was deportation train # 19, starting at Moabit, Putlitzstrasse Station.

Scrolling down reveals a commentary on Lucie:

Lucie Noack, geb. Friedlaender, wohnte bei Goldstein in der Wilhelmsaue 3, bevor sie wieder in der Xantener Str. 5, vermutlich in der Wohnung ihrer Mutter Martha Friedlaender, gemeldet war. Die 1891 in Berlin geborene Frau ist am 5.9.1942 mit 796 Menschen vom Gueterbahnhof Moabit über Insterburg nach Riga deportiert worden und dort wie die meisten – darunter 25 Kinder unter zehn Jahren – sofort nach ihrer Ankunft am 8. Mai [recte: September] erschossen worden. Martha Friedlaender, geb. Cassirer, wurde am 10.9.1859 in Beuthen (Oberschlesien) geboren. Sie ist mit dem „10. Alterstransport“ am 25.6.1942 nach Theresienstadt deportiert worden, wo sie am 8.7.1942 im Alter von 83 Jahren zu Tode kam. Nur diese duerftigen Daten sind bekannt, ueber sie sind sonst keine Unterlagen mehr vorhanden.

The prosaic point in this terrifying context is, that Martha Friedlaender 'geb.(orene) Cassirer' was born 9/10/1859 in Beuthen (Bytom) (and died in Thersienstadt on 7/8/1942).

Her daughter Lucie Friedlaender, born 1891 in Berlin and married to a Noack, lived c/o Goldstein, Wilhelmsaue 3, and moved eventually again (wieder) to Xantener Str(asse) 5, where she was registred presumably at the appartment of her mother. This is all we know at this point.

Site Editor's comment: There is a listing for Martha Cassirer (b. 1900, d. 1942) in MyHeritage.Com with parents Beno Cassirer and JULIA KROTOSCHINER MÜLLER (1878-?), and siblings Anneliese Cassirer (1916-2000) and Ilse Cassirer (?-1942). The information is provided at the KROTOSCHINER KLEMANN Web Site and is maintained by EVELYN KROTOSCHINER KLEMANN. Whilst the birth date does not match the death date does.
