Memorial stone near Vik in South Iceland

The memorial stone was erected in collaboration with the German navy museum in Bremerhaven and remembers the 1,000 seamen, which lost their lives on German fishing boats in Icelandig waters between 1898 and 1952. At the same time it is meant to thank the numerous Icelandic helpers, who always took care of the casualty fisherman and could save many lifes.
