    Outside of Heidenheim, Germany a path near our house lead to a marker "Bettlermansgrab," that is, "beggar man's grave." The man had been known to frequent the woods, but nobody knew his name.

    One winter he was found deceased in the snow and a tribute raised in his honor. So much humanity for a place where such a person would have been put to death not so long ago.
