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.
