Visitors to Berlin, Germany's Jewish cemeteries can now use their smartphones to take an "electronic tour" that provides information about people buried there.
There is a QR code at the entrance of each cemetery which can be scanned by a smartphone and directly connects to the cemeteries' website. Each smartphone's built-in GPS capability enables visitors to plan their own "tour," choosing among about 160 of the 150,000 graves in the three Berlin cemeteries.
