    The war memorial was built in 1928. Teacher Friedrich Rath noted in the school chronicle of 28 February 1928: "Finally, the community came to the fallen in the World War to set a worthy monument. ...
    ... The monument is an adornment of the place and at the same time a walk for the strangers. "
    On 07.09.1931 the war memorial was inaugurated with a ceremony.Unguarded quarry stone construction, basalt stela with names of both World War II victims, warrior figure without weapons of sandstone, expressionism.Often referred to as a lookout tower, but I have seen no rising.

    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 of these places, which one encounters on the way, bear witness to the horrors of war and tyranny, which are still relevant and important today. They all have two main functions:
    -1- Remember the victims and remember them
    -2- Admonish the keeping of the peace
