Help me with a German sentence (quote?).
German speakers: is the following sentence a quote from German literature? It's in reference to a picture of a Jewish headstone with pebbles on it.
"Wieviel Wissen wird unter diesen Steinen liegen"
Just wondering if this is a literary quote, or merely the musings of the commentor.
