    The memorial is located in the Gevelsberger Stadtwald and consists of a rectangular column of about 12-15m high with a vertical lettering: UNVERGESSE N. The pillar is supported by wings at the side attached wall plaques of the former Ennepe office (...) In the entrance area, a plaque with an inscription for the dead of the Second World War was erected Design: Hans Erwin Nau, site supervision: Peter and Emil Nau, architects.The panels are alphabetically labeled with the fallen per war year. Unfortunately, not all names could be recorded. Dense foliage obscures some of the names listed at the bottom of the panels.Source: denkmalprojekt.org/dkm_deutschland/gevelsberg_wk1_nrw.htm

    Very imposing monument, somehow also depressing, I cannot describe what goes through my head when one is symbolically reminded of what a tragedy a war is and how many human sacrifices it demands. Anyone hiking around Gevelsberg should definitely visit this quiet place of mourning.
