GERMAN WAR MEMORIAL
The German War Memorial to the Victims of War was erected by the German Americans of the United States of America in cooperation with the American Legion of the State of Utah in memory of the men who died while interred at Fort Douglas During World War I.
The monument was designed and constructed by Arno Steinecke. It was dedicated on Memorial Day May 30 1933.
Fifty-five years later, in 1988, the monument was restored by sculptor Hans Huenlinger and his son John under arrangements made by the GermanAir Force and German War Graves Commission.
Today the restored monument stands in of the victims of both World Wars who are buried here in Fort Douglas Cemetery and to the victims of war and despotism throughout the world.
