Nicht grossern Vorteil wusst'ich zu nennen
Als des'Feindes Verdienst erkennen.
No greater gain for the human spirit
Than a sense of our foeman's merit.

The memorial transcribed above is located at Riverside Cemetery in Asheville, North Carolina. Text from the Riverside Cemetery Walking Tour: "Riverside Cemetery is the final resting place for World War I German Prisoners of War. Several thousand sailors were first transferred from Ellis Island to a detention center in Hot Springs, North Carolina. A typhoid epidemic resulted in 18 of the sailors dying. The POWs were given a place of rest at Riverside Cemetery."
