The German memorial on Víkurfjara

This memorial stone stands on the Víkurfjara beach. It was erected in partnership with the Bremerhaven navy museum in Germany. It is an homage to the thousands of German fishermen who lost their lives in Icelandic waters at the beginning of the twentieth century, as well as to the Icelanders who risked their lives to try and save them.
