Is it a coincidence that the ARD broadcast their 1000th crime scene just in foggy November? So November already has a special flair: or is already starting well with remembrance of the dead. What am I supposed to think of a month like this? Where the cemeteries are imposed? In contrast to us here in Central Europe, southern countries like Portugal have a very different relationship to their dear deceased: No one will be sunk into the earth, but will enter a tomb. The family coffins are stacked as if in a loft bed and are completely visible to every visitor to the cemetery. A small table with pictures of the dead stands nicely decorated in the middle with a lace doily. But even in daylight it creeps you out when the lid of some coffins has shifted. Which one of you would have taken a look inside? Well, Hand from Heart?
Cemeteries in Frankfurt are plentiful, and they can also be visited with a guided tour. I can highly recommend the main cemetery, where the writer Ricarda Huch and the poet Robert Gernhardt are buried next to the philosopher Adorno. The old Jewish cemetery can also be visited by appointment. But those who have always wondered where Goethe's parents rest will find what they are looking for at the Peterskirchhof. Not only that: many Dutch surnames point to a close, above all economically justified, relationship with the neighbouring country.
Of course every child knows that not everyone dies of natural causes. If another ogre has contributed to this, it'll be very tingly. The ARD just broadcast the crime scene for the 1000th time. Reason enough for the Citizens' University in its series „ crime scene research“ to fathom everything around series, forensic medicine and much more. On 5.12., several guests will be investigating the question of how modern methods are changing investigative work. Doesn?
And if that's not creepy enough for you, you can just sneak through town with actors in the dark. „Morticus“ entertains with horror stories and causes terrible tingling in the stomach!
