As a memorial to the many dead, such memorials or war memorials are very important to this day. "Now you, lord, let your servant part in peace, as you said ..." it says in the so-called "hymn of praise of Simeon" (Luke Gospel chapter 2, verse 29). The people who are commemorated here, however, are not divorced in peace, but have become victims of war and tyranny.
Many places that one encounters on the way bear witness to the horrors of war and tyranny, which are still important today. They all have two main functions:
-1- Remember the victims and remember them
-2- Admonish the keeping of the peace
