Description

Monolith of 6 meters high, extracted from the Rotbach quarry and carved in Vosges sandstone by artist Bernard Pètry from Goetzenbruck. It is pierced with a dove that seems to fly to a serene sky and is surmounted by two children representing the youth of France and Germany. Originally, one of the children were coloured, one was blond (Germany), and the other brown (France) (now only a few traces of paint are left). It symbolizes the twinning between the two municipalities, Rosbruck in France, and Großrosseln in Germany, and was erected to commemorate the fifth anniversary of their twinning.
The monument is located almost exactly at the French-German border.
