War Memorial Blumenthal

This memorial commemorates the victims of the First and Second World War.

A crucifixion group was established on the new Olefbrücke in Blumenthal in 1948 as a 4th benediction station in the processions and as a memorial to the fallen. In 1958, master stonemason Johann Pützer from Esch Kreis Daun offered his services to engrave the stone tablets for the memorial on the parapet of the bridge.
Three stone tablets are attached to the right parapet of the bridge. On the center stone a lamb with blood from a wound in a cup with the words "MORS / TUA" below and below "VITA / NOS / TRA".
The names of the fallen soldiers of the Second World War come from the notebook 854 in the municipal archives of Hellenthal.
