A summer conviviality on the Gottesacker in Wismar

On Saturday, July 6, the Verein zur Förderung der Friedhofskultur e.V. in Wismar invites you to the "10 Jahre Friedhofsverein. Wandering along forgotten paths. A summer festival on the Gottesacker". From 3 p.m. you can enjoy home-baked cakes at a beautifully laid coffee table and get into conversation with each other. On this day, you can experience the cemetery in a different way - as a place of encounter, history, cuisine and culture.
The highlight will be a lady from the past - the Silesian poet Friederike Kempner, who achieved great things as a fighter against apparent death. In Wismar, the former mortuary bears witness to this fear, which gripped the whole of Europe in the 19th century. Friederike Kempner not only wrote dramatic poems about it, but also actively campaigned for the establishment of mortuaries in Prussia by appealing directly to the Prussian king. On this afternoon, you can listen to her stories and illustrious poetry.
There will also be music and singing, an audio presentation and exhibition in the mortuary on previous projects of the cemetery association, a colorful coffee table, punch and barbecue ...
