Walking through a cemetary near a mosque in Berlin, we stopped to look at the tombstones of these two men. Turkish. Brothers. Young, early 20s. Died on the same day.
Like most people do when they don’t understand what they see on the street, we Googled it.
But while there were a couple shreds of details about them, there was nothing definitive, and certainly nothing that discussed how they passed away, and why they were memoralized with such large tombstones. The mosque was empty, and without being able to ask anyone, we couldn’t find out any details. And so we’ll probably never know.
