Description

Architectural facade with a central niche a stone statue of St. George with the slain dragon.

Inscription(s)

remember with thanksgiving
the men of this city
who in their
country's hour of need
went forth
endured hardness
faced danger
and finally
passed out of
the sight of men
by the path of sacrifice
and the gate of death.
let all who come after
see to it
that these dead
shall not have died
in vain
that their name
be not forgotten
and what they strove for
perish not

these lower panels
are dedicated
to those
who died
in the cause
of freedom
during
the world war
1939-1945
and the
struggles which
followed
