A sculpture of a rifleman created by the sculptor Victor was put up on June 10, 1923 in remembrance of Brandenburg’s infantry battalion no. 3 that was banned by the victorious powers of World War I in 1918.

The sculpture represented a member of the battalion dressed in the typical infantry uniform, wielding a hunting dagger attached to a rifle, stepping over a conquered enemy cannon barrel. 

The monument remained in place for a while after the end of World War II, until it disappeared under circumstances that still remain unclear.

The local peace council in Lübben suggested on March 1, 1956 to convert the base of the former infantry monument into a little memorial dedicated to peacekeeping.

It was unveiled in a ceremony held on September 5, 1959. A plate was attached to the base inscribed ‘Millionen Opfer zweier Weltkriege mahnen zum Frieden’ (‘millions of victims of two world wars are advocates of peace’). Picasso’s peace dove, the symbol of the peace movement, is pictured below the text.

In the years thereafter, ceremonies were held at the monument on world peace day on September 1, in which flowers and wreaths were laid down in memory of German soldiers killed in action. 

After the re-unification, Remembrance Day (since 1952 the second Sunday before the first Advent Sunday) was chosen as a memorial day for both world wars.
