Kriegsgräberstätte - War Cemetery


Reimsbach - Entrance

Beckingen, Merzig-Wadern, Saarland, Germany

📌 In the courtyard is a bronze statue by Saarland sculptor Oswald Hiery from Wallerfangen-Ihn, which was unveiled in 1977 by the then Saarland Interior Minister in 1977.

✅ In a realistic representation, his work shows two men dragging someone who was fatally injured, as a symbol of the helplessness of man in a violent death.
The helmet, worn by one of the three naked men, is said to be a classic symbol of war, indicating struggle and destruction, victory, and defeat.
