Memorial Plaque Jesuit church Heidelberg

In the Jesuit Church in the right side nave is a beautiful pieta, dating from 1905, by the sculptor Julius Seitz.

At a later date, a memorial plaque was placed on the plinth bearing a text from Psalm 125, 5-6:

"Who are in tears
with rejoicing they will reap.
They go there, they go and cry
and carry the seeds they are to sow.
But they will come, yes come with cheers
and bear their sheaves "

Below: "The dead of the 2 great wars".
