War Memorial in Muehlacker/Muehlhausen

Pictures and text by Mark R. Hatlie

These pictures were taken on December 25th, 2005 at the Albani church at the center of the town of Muehlhausen/Enz, now part of Muehlacker between Stuttgart and Pforzheim. They show a memorial for the local fallen for both world wars.

The ensemble is located to the side of the church. It includes two benches and a cement flowerpot.
The bronze markers on the ground read, In the north; In the south; In the east; In the west; On the ground; in the air; On the water. That is remarkable in being a thinly veiled reminder to the totality of the war and, to some degree, a reminder of the fact that Germans were fighting just about everybody all over.
The city of Muehlacker recently left a wreath, probably on the national day of mourning in November.
The five stone tablets list the years of the two wars and the names of the fallen under each year.
The second one from the left also bears the large words, You the victims warn for peace.

I would like to thank Matthias Scheible of Lomersheim for showing me this site.
