  1. Hi
    I am looking for my great grandmother – who we know was taken to Weisensee end of January, 1941.
    I have contacted the cemetery and they say they don’t have the grave, but I have new information (her date of birth) and was told originally that there was someone there with the same name but the dates didn’t match up. Who can help me? My mother was born in Berlin and her greatest wish is to find the grave of her grandmother – my mother is 85 years old and I don’t have much time and we would love to be able to honor my great grandmother’s memory. If we can’t find the actual grave, can we put up a plaque in the cemetery? Can someone please contact me to help me?
    Thank you.
