No.6: Highgate Cemetery, London, England, poetically overgrown, with the grave of Karl Marx and other illustrious dead.

The remaining six were in Warsaw, Japan, India, Prague (the old Jewish Cemetery), Buenos Aires and again Italy with the Monumental Cemetery of Staglieno, Genoa, with its celebrated “Grieving Angel”.
