Vith friends from comunity wee lit some candles there on All Souls’ Day last year and we think to do it again this yar.

Did they move the bodies, too, or did they just leave them in the ground, unmarked?

Second part is “German Solider”, i think the first part is something “Unknown”, “Fin” been end in some languages but “End Unknown” doesn’t sound right. Could it be German way of saying “Unknown Solider”?

"An unknown German soldier" (Ein unbekannter deutscher Soldat).
