More than 40 hectares and around 110,000 grave sites make the cemetery in Weißensee the largest Jewish cemetery in Europe - and just in the center of the former Nazi Germany.
The Nazi era left surprisingly few traces in the large cemetery, but after the Second World War, almost no Jews lived in Berlin and the cemetery neglected over the decades. It was only at the beginning of the 1980s and then intensified after the reunification that the renovation of the magnificent cemetery started - but that will take many more years.
At present, you can still experience how the ravages of time and nature have left their mark on the magnificent burial grounds.
