Maximilian Harden's grave in Berlin
photo of grave September 2018
Harden is buried not far from where I live so I went to have a look. Since 2014 the grave is no longer a "grave of honour". They seem to be terminated when there is insufficient public interest, presumably an economy measure; the city is responsible for their upkeep. An older, official photo can be seen here.

A bronze plaque in memory of his wife Selma has been removed.
The sarcophagus is made of Rochlitzer porphyry, a reddish tuff. It was designed by the Berlin sculptor Ludwig Isenbeck.
