Visited on May 2021

It is the first warm day of the year and we decided to travel north. The old Jewish cemetery in Berlin Weissensee is one of the largest in Europe. 115,200 Berlin Jews are burried here and beneath them also people like the painter Lesser Ury and the publisher Samuel Fischer. Please dress modestly when you visit and wear cover your head if you are a man.
