This memorial is located in the Hietaniemi cemetary in Helsinki, Finland. This picture is from my visit there 2007.

Who ever said there is a memorial with pictures in Garmisch for dead German soldiers is correct, there is one within walking distance of Maximillianshohe on the south west end of Garmisch

That was me, and I am glad you saw it as well. I have saw that memorial in 2007, but upon my return to Garmisch in 2010 I couldn't find it. I would like to return some day and see it again.

German war memorial in Biestrzynnik-(Ringwalde)

Post by Paul Warzecha » 16 Sep 2011 21:24

There is a German war memorial in the small Upper Silesian village of Biestrzynnik which was renamed Ringwalde during the Third Reich. It has the name of a Josef Warzecha on it. He was probably a distant relative of mine. My ancestor Johann Warzecha was born in that village in 1826 and came to the USA and settled in Texas in 1855. I would like to know what branch of the German wehrmacht did Josef Warzecha serve and where he was killed.

Since at least 12 persons by this name (Josef Warzecha) died in WW2 (and 4 in WW1), it will not be that easy.

Travelling through Normandy in August this year, my family made a point of visiting La Cambe, becasue my 9 year old boys personal hero - after his grandfather! - is interred there, and because after visiting the American cemetery at Omaha, we felt a little overpowered and were near as dammit strip searched to get in!!

Anyway, La Cambe is a revelation; it is calm, tranquil, sombre and achingly beautiful, if that's the right word to describe a place where 21,222 soldiers lie - it really is a monument to peace; I thank the people who made this place worth the visit.

Interesting discussion about a German war memorial in Sedan which is in a state of disrepair:

„Ort der Erinnerung“ oder reine Provokation? Ein deutsches Denkmal aus dem Ersten Weltkrieg in der französischen Stadt Sedan soll abgerissen werden. Der Bürgermeister hält es für wertlos – Historiker wollen es restaurieren....
