At Fovrfeldt Cemetary, you find this Memorial Wall, commemorating the Esbjerg citizens, who fell victim to the Second World War (1939 – 1945).

The bronze relief shows Death, in the guise of an adult man, putting his arm protectively and comforting around the young man, gently leading him across the threshold between life and death.

At the Fovrfeld Cemetary, 280 Allied airmen, 1150 German soldiers and 151 German refugees are buried. They are all casualties of World War Two.
