I too would rather see separate tags for the 'use', the construction,
Not being local to any stolperstein that has no meaning to me, I have to

A war memorial could be a plaque, an obelisk, a statue, a plate.
A plaque could be for a war, a person, a group of people, a machine, or
an event. Without using another source the information in OSM for this
tag is not very descriptive.
