Childhood mortality

A fascinating trio of figures from the main cemetery (Hauptfriedhof) in Frankfurt am Main, Germany. It isn't clear from the inscriptions on the grave whether the child in the womans arms is alive or nor, but I think it is safe to assume that it is dead. This must be the worst thing that parents can go through.
