This simple pair of stone plaques say so much when you stop to read them. They are in a cloister of church in a town we have visited so many times over the past 30 years. They refer to a subject which has to be in the front of your mind whenever visiting Germany and are a silent witness to awful times and happenings.

In memory of the 42 people, men, women and children, from Oerhingen who died in the Deathcamps of the National Socialist Terrors between 1938 and 1945.

At the end it says:-

The stones are silent and cold

The flags blow in the wind.
