Since 2010, right next to the churchyard wall, there is a memorial place commemorating the victims of National Socialism. From 1968 to 2009, there was a war memorial for soldiers from Silbertal, which had fallen in the 1st and 2nd world wars. Among the cited was also a Nazi perpetrator. As this became known, the community Silbertal strove for a confrontation with its history and which led to the removal of the war memorial.
