    In 1938, the monument was built in its present form on the site of a former artillery position at Heikendorf-Möltenort in its present form. With more than 35,000 names from both world wars, it serves as a reminder of the German submariners who stayed at sea.
    The seafront front is flanked by two halls of honor, which are also access to the semi-circular corridor. On the outside of the lower reaches are 74 bronze commemorative plaques for the Second World War (739 boats), on the inside 27 nameplates (199 boats) for the First World War
    In the middle of the front is a 15 m high pillar with a bronze eagle, which has a wingspan of 4.80 m and a height of 4.60 m. Underneath is the badge of the submariners of World War II. On the square in front of the memorial there are panels with the sinking positions of the submarines of both world wars.

    On the east bank of the Kiel Fjord, on the former "Möltenorter Schanze" in Heikendorf, is the Möltenort submarine memorial, in which the losses and victims of the submarine war are commemorated.
    The submarine memorial is a place of silence and remembrance, but also a reminder. The names of more than 35,000 submariners from both world wars are recorded on bronze plaques. The soldiers who gave their lives on submarines in peace are also remembered here. In addition, the memorial commemorates all victims of the submarine war. The front facade facing the lake is flanked by two "honorary halls", which also mark the entrances to the semicircular tour with bronze plaques on which the names of the fallen are recorded.
    The U-Boot-Ehrenmal Möltenort is looked after by the Volksbund together with the U-Boot-Ehrenmal Foundation and the U-Boot-Kameradschaft Kiel. (Excerpt from schleswig-holstein.volksbund.de).
    I can only confirm the experience I have already had, a place that gets under your skin and gives rise to a very depressing feeling and the hope that something like this will never happen again.
