Press through a wire strainer to remove seeds, measure (you should have 2 cups puree), and add sugar to taste only if you have used fresh berries.
Frozen berries need no extra sugar.
Combine the 1 1/4 cups sugar, water, and corn syrup in a small pan; bring to a boil and cook over high heat until the temperature reaches 238° (soft ball stage) on a candy thermometer.
Beat egg whites with an electric mixer until soft peaks form, then gradually beat in hot syrup.
Continue beating at high speed for 8 minutes, or until meringue mixture cools to room temperature.
Fold in raspberry puree and kirsch.
Whip cream until stiff; fold into meringue.
Line the buttered sides of a 9-inch cheesecake pan (a pan with removable bottom or spring-release sides) with split ladyfingers.
Pour in the raspberry mixture.
Cover and freeze until firm (8 hours or longer).
