What Blaze Bernstein left in his West Philadelphia apartment — and how it captures who he was

For the first time since his death, his parents and two siblings visited Penn to attend a memorial at the Kelly Writers House, talk to friends, and pack up the belongings he left behind in his apartment at 4111 Walnut Street

    What Blaze Bernstein left in his West Philadelphia apartment - and how it captures who he was
    In the past two months, Penn has watched as the story surrounding the death of College sophomore Blaze Bernstein unfolded on a national stage. Amid the reports of his death and the consequent arrest of his alleged killer, Sam Woodward, friends of Bernstein have helped each other find ways to mourn the 19-year-old student and honor who he was.

A month after Blaze’s death, the Bernsteins come to Penn to pack up what he left behind

The Bernsteins arrived in Philadelphia on Thursday from their home in Orange County, California. They headed to Blaze’s apartment at 4111 Walnut where they started to pack up his things. Throughout the process, there were moments where Jeanne or Gideon hugged a child — or each other — as support.
