Leipzig honors Marinus van der Lubbe with a new grave and memorial stone

The final resting place of Marinus van der Lubbe now ‘finally’ has some dignity. His grave at the South Cemetery in Leipzig was consecrated on Wednesday, complete with a memorial stone. “This gives a good feeling,” says a family member. It is exactly ninety years after his execution: Van der Lubbe was accused of setting fire to the German Reichstag in 1993.
