Pictures and text by Mark R. Hatlie
These pictures were taken on Sunday, January 15th, 2006 in the courtyard of the church in Kilchberg, officially a part of Tuebingen, but a few kilometers outside of town.
|The memorial carries an iron cross at the top. The wreath is from the city of Tuebingen.|
|The front of the memorial reads in large letters, Our Fathers and Sons (Unseren Vaetern und Soehnen). The dates 1939-1945 are followed by the names of the fallen, listed in alphabetical order without other information.|
|The left side of the memorial has the same information for World War One.|
|On the other side of the memorial, it reads, Died at home (In der Heimat mussten sterben), followed by the names of men and women who died in Germany or perhaps even locally. The three names from the Krauss family might mean that there was a bombing or fighting in the village and their house was hit.|
|Behind the viewer of the memorial, on the side of the church partially hidden from view, there is a plaque to the fallen of World War One.|
|In memory of those who fell in the World War 1914-1918 (Zum Gedaechnis an die im Weltkriege 1914-1918 Gefallenen). The names are listed alphabetically, each with the date of death.|
