A monument that tells the story of Malchow and is itself a part of it.
The massive concrete block that now stands in the city park by the city church once had a different appearance. In the 1920s, it was created by Wilhelm Wandschneider under the name "Swastika Monument."
At that time with a warrior naked except for the antique helmet on the pedestal, whose broken shield was decorated with a swastika. This warrior disappeared during the attempt to transport him to a museum in Schwerin.
The monument was built in honor of the fallen warriors in the First World War and has those names engraved on it. Initially, the monument stood at the present-day intersection of Rostocker Strasse and Bahnhofstrasse, but in the 1950s it was moved from there to the city park and replaced by another monument.
To this day you can read the names of the fallen Malchow soldiers and commemorate them for their courage.
