Unbelievable - but unfortunately true: theft on the cemetery!

Not far from Sophie-Charlotten-Str. 15, the headquarters of our moving company founded in Charlottenburg in 1865, is the largest cemetery of the Protestant Luisen-church community on Fürstenbrunner Weg, the Luisenkirchhof III.

This is also the final resting place of our company founder Emil Hertling and that of his descendants, especially the 2nd and 3rd generation of Hertling entrepreneurs. Unfortunately, we recently discovered that the doors to the grave fences of the Hertling family's two grave sites had apparently been stolen. It's unbelievable that there are actually people who go to cemeteries themselves to steal anything that isn't nailed down. We find this extremely disrespectful. We are at a loss for words. What times are these when not even the final resting place is spared!!!

Our hope remains that the artfully forged metal doors that can still be seen in the one older picture have perhaps not yet been sold as scrap metal for a few euros and will find their way back to where they have belonged for over 100 years.

Deeply saddened by this unpleasant surprise, your Hertling team
