A museum opens in the singer city of Finsterwalde, with singing as its main subject. From its collection comes a small memorial made from Mosbach majolica. The full-sized original is located in Thuringia and reminds of the great composer Friedrich Silcher (1789 - 1860). "Am Brunnen vor dem Tore", "Ännchen von Tharau" or "Lorelei" are choir classics everyone knows. During the war in 1941, however, when the memorial was erected, a different song was supposed to be referenced: "Ich hatt' einen Kameraden", the military dirge set to a text by Ludwig Uhland. That is why the composer is surrounded by warriors here. They are to illustrate how everyone goes to war together, but good friends are hit and die. Back then, a fate of horrific prosaicness. Since the German military forces have taken on assignments abroad again, Silcher's song is sung again in official capacity to honor the dead .
