The Jewish cemetery at Weißensee in Berlin is a wondrous place.
It is vast in space with more than 100,000 graves, and the Jewish tradition of leaving graves undisturbed in perpetuity has created a vastness in time.
What we have here is a landscape of time.
Miraculously, the cemetery was largely unharmed by war and the Nazis, but has suffered vandalism after the second world war. We humans are strange, we can’t even leave the dead unharmed.
Traditional tombstones mingle with more contemporary designs, like the one above for the grave of Stefan Heym.
Long alleys through memory lead to the eternal question:
What will the future bring?
