  1. #31
    May be a wierd question.. :S but does anyone know a name of a graveyard/cemetery - you know the place where people are buried in Germany in Berlin?. Because my characters in my story is soon going to a trip to Germany , Berlin where they want to visit their mother grave. The story takes place in 1953.

    In 1953, where Berlin east and west berlin `Or just Berlin? I tried to find out bit wikipedia confuses me.

    *is not sure about the dates*

    There is the Alter Garnisonsfriedhof, which is really old. I'd link you to it, but I'm not sure I'm allowed to (there's a page with history to it and stuff, just google it). And yes, it was West- and East Berlin then. You might want to re-check in which part the graveyard you want your characters to visit is supposed to be.

    After the war, in 1945, Berlin was divided into four sectors according to how Germany was divided into four sectors, each sector for one of the victorious countries (USA, Great Britain, France and Sowjet Union). Each sector was more or less governed by those countries, including Berlin. In 1948/1949 there was a blockade of West Berlin by the east, as a result of increasing political differences between the USA, GB, France and Sowjet Union.

    When then the GDR and Federal Republic of Germany were founded, the allied powers moved their government to Bonn. The GDR announced Berlin its capital. The Cold War culminated in the Berlin crisis with the building of the Berliner Mauer on 13 August 1961.

    So, yes, in 1953, Berlin was already divided into east and west.

    Rk means roman catholic, I think. But with those graveyards, you need to be careful that they already existed in 1953. Some districts may have been towns of their own back then etc, or the graveyards just hadn't been founded yet.

    Possibly, Ld. means "landeigen," that is the graveyard belongs to the city/state, and anyone (no matter of what religion they are or aren't) can be buried there. But I'm not sure...

    Bine: Makes sense, with what Rk and Ld mean.

    ^ Thanks for your help both of you

    Karaley Dargen - about my characters should go to East or West. In fact I have not decided yet because I can't decide. My characters (Three characters) are going to Germany because two of them want to find out their father's past.
    I was thinking about choosen West Berlin because I thought it might would be easier to get into? The characters are all young 15, 13 and 8.

    If I choose it to be west how can I see which cemeteries who were in West Berlin?

    Here's a map of West Berlin's districts. When you then check the list above, you see which graveyards lie in which districts (the districts are the underlined).

    ^ Thanks agian. Choosing a graveyard is not the easist thing . In my next life I am not going to write a story taking place in Germany agian.

    Hmm I could not find a better place to ask. Are there any special customs in Germany? Like any special way to say hello to each other etc. Since Germany is a country close to the country where I live I suposse that Germany is not very different from Denmark.
    I just wondering,

    We say "Hallo", or "Hey" when we're talking to friends. Though as your story is set in the fifties, you might want to settle for "Guten Tag" and a handshake.

    ¡El planeta de los simios!
    I have a few German questions.

    In the story I'm writing (Für Das Größere Wohl), the school of Durmstrang has three kinds of student prefects. There are about a dozen ordinary prefects, at least two in the middle rank, and one top prefect. So, what I'm wondering is, what would be a good name for the highest rank? Hauptpräfekt and Oberpräfekt are two names I've come up with, but which one would be higher than the other? Or do you have any alternative suggestions for titles?

    Also, as I do not trust internet translators, here are a few things I'd like to have in German:

    A New World
    Attack is Defence
    “In the absence of orders, go find something and kill it.”
    Durmstrang Institute for Magical Learning
    Potions Class
    Defensive Magic
    History of Magic

    Also, I have come across two different spellings of Soviet Union: Sowjetunion and Sovjetunion. Which one is the correct spelling, or are they both valid?

    Lastly, what are some cultural stereotypes Germans have of Polish people? Of Russians?
