... invited me to dinner with his family. His father, an architect, who had temporarily discharged himself from hospital, his sisters and brother - one sister had lived in Baltimore for 6 years so spoke fluent English and her 6 year old daughter who had been born in the States and obviously wanted to be back there!

It is well worth the price though - the simple but beautiful mosaic work and the turquoise ribbed dome are amazing. Inside we find the family cenotaph - the actual tombs are lower down, in a crypt which is not open. As we enter a group of local people is taking a guided tour, and this ...

The story says that his bones were disinterred by the Soviets that day before Hitler unleashed Barbarossa and, the day after his bones were returned, the Germans because to start their retreat.
