A Volkstrauertag (German: people’s mourning day) was proposed in 1919 by the German War Graves Commission (Volksbund Deutsche Kriegsgräberfürsorge) as a commemoration for German soldiers killed in the First World War. It was first held in 1922 in the Reichstag and in 1926, it was decided to observe Volkstrauertag regularly on Reminiscere (the second Sunday of Lent.)
On march the 1st we will have a gathering at the church at 1pm.
We will commemorate those who fell during the Great war and leave flowers at the monument outside.
There will be no ‘Happy Hour’ at Der Keller on this day.
