On the fourth of May we want to remember: 3...
Component from the Court of Honor with the reflecting pool in Margraten the Netherlands...
It belongs to the Netherlands American Cemetery and Memorial.

The mourning figure, representing the grieving mother of her lost son, the doves, the new shoot from the war destroyed tree are appositely described by the inscription on the stone base:

NEW LIFE FROM WAR’S DESTRUCTION PROCLAIMS MAN’S IMMORTALITY AND HOPE FOR PEACE

The west face of the tower bears this inscription from a free translation of Pericles’ oration as recorded by Thucydides:

EACH FOR HIS OWN MEMORIAL
EARNED PRAISE THAT WILL NEVER DIE
AND WITH IT
THE GRANDEST OF ALL SEPULCHRES
NOT THAT IN WHICH
HIS MORTAL BONES ARE LAID
BUT A HOME
IN THE MINDS OF MEN
