Re-erected in 2007, the monument stone was dedicated to the memory of the World War II German Bismarck-class Battleship Tirpitz and crew. In actions at the North Atlantic on November 12, 1944, the Tirpitz was a victim of a British Lancaster bomber air attack. She received massive damage, listed heavily, then suffered explosion from her ammunition magazine and capsized with loss of over 1,000 lives.
