Weinberg's final resting place

Mieczyslaw Weinberg, Vainberg, Grave, Cemetery,
The Grave of Mieczysław Weinberg, with Nadezhda Grinchar (Weinberg's Mother-in-Law), 49, Domodedovo Cemetery.

In a quiet cemetery outside of Moscow lies Weinberg's final resting place in a Russian Orthodox grave, in accordance with his final wishes. The plot is also the resting place of Nadezhda Grinchar, mother of Olga Rakhalskaya, Weinberg's second wife.

The inscription quotes the Gospel of St. John, Chapter 11, Verse 25:

'He that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live'.
