Synopsis
Morning dew and fog, high trees and thickets. Among them are columns, stones, mausoleums, ivy, lilac and a small fox running across the path - the cemetery of Berlin’s Jewish community.
Weissensee is Europe’s biggest Jewish cemetery, which is still open for new burials. It is now 130 years old - and was never been destroyed. Not only the cemetery survived, but also its archives - a paradise for treasure hunters.
