Jewish cemetery, Prenzlauer

Part of the Jewish cemetery ( Jüdischer Friedhof ) in Schonhauser Allee, Prenzlauer. It’s history is an interesting read, although the only gravesite I specifically went looking for was that of Max Liebermann, the expressionist painter who died in 1935. His wife committed suicide in 1943 rather than be deported and is also buried in the family plot.

Apparently the broken gravestones are not a result of deliberate vandalism during the Nazi era, but were damage d in WWII – http://bit.ly/1sgZb2Z…
