The monument on the Rumpelstein was inaugurated in 1936 and commemorates the German soldiers from Gernsbach who died in the First World War. Due to the construction, the construction during the Nazi dictatorship is clearly recognizable: In the middle of the building there is an oversized steel helmet on an altar-like stone block, a typical representation for Nazi buildings. On the mountain side there was previously a swastika below the imperial eagle, today there is an empty circle on the site.
