Munich: Fritz Wepper buried at the Winthirfriedhof – Munich

It is a very appropriate picture that was put up on Wednesday afternoon in the Herz-Jesu-Kirche in the Neuhausen district of Munich: Fritz Wepper smiles, the size of a poster and in black and white, into the still empty church, where the mourners are about to take their seats. A mischievous smile, as if he was about to say something. And so the photo fits perfectly with what the mourners are about to say about the actor on the way to the memorial service. On a day that becomes sunny as the music plays inside, that is sad because many people have to bury a loved one here, but that is also sad because emotions other than sadness are evidently emerging. This becomes clear when Barbara Engel, the ex-wife of Bernd Herzsprung, one of the deceased’s best friends, is not allowed into the church, even though she says she is invited.
