Free admission!

Memorial day for deceased children

Memories are like stars that shine comfortingly into the darkness of grief


This year within the accompanying programme of the current special exhibition "Dialogue With The End"

A light goes around the world

Every year on the second Sunday in December, people around the world have been placing lit candles in their windows at 7 p.m. for many years. While the candles go out in one time zone, they are lit in the next, so that a chain of lights encircles the whole world for 24 hours.

All who have been touched personally or professionally by the death of a child are invited to attend the hour of remembrance at the Museum for Sepulchral Culture.

Sunday, December 11, 2022 at 6 p.m.
