War Memorial - Holy Heart StatueVirton

Tekst on the information board:
This monument was erected after the First World War because the parish of Virton was saved of pillage and massacres. It was inaugurated on 22 September 1929. On the base of the monument are two bas-reliefs in bronze presenting each a triptych. The one on the left-hand side shows the village of Ethe on fire while the other one, on the right-hand side shows scenes of regained peace.
