My dead neighbor's secrets

Von Autor Philipp Maußhardt

When a tenant dies, the landlord is sometimes stuck cleaning out the apartment. How does he react when the deceased’s belongings include explosives, photographic documentation of minor sex crimes, and a portrait of a Wehrmacht officer painted on a piece of Torah scroll? Zeitenspiegel’s Philipp Mausshardt finds out the hard way.
