The German War Memorial above Tobruk


The alcoves contain the names of the fallen

Liver marked head the naked violence of the stars The battle was imposed on us and we bore the heat Naming names here at the place where we fought and fell: This place is called desert - sand that shows no trace. The desert wind was our shroud, hearts scorching in our bodies,, A storm of fate extinguished the light of our earthly days. What we were you are, and what was imposed on us threatens you. Learn from tracks covered over, make sure that the desert doesn't grow. Rest in peace, German soldiers. An inscribed bronze plate
