War Memorial in Obbach, Germany

Pictures and text by Stephanie Lyons

This memorial is located right off the side of the road in Obbach. The pictures were taken on October 4th, 2008.

Here you see the whole monument from as far as I could get across the street. This monument is still well kept to this day with flowers and greenery surrounding it and behind is a church.
Here is the center piece of the monument that reads UNSEREN HELDEN, "TO OUR HEROES."
Here is the top of the monument with a soldier helping a wounded soldier.
Here you see a woman grieving, a child and a soldier in formation marching away going to war and names presented on the bottom of them.
Here you see the right side of the monument where it looks as if a civilian women and child is thanking and welcoming soldiers with flowers as they come home from war, also names of soldiers on the bottom of them.
