The Grieving Parents by Käthe Kollwitz is a world-famous work of art that symbolises the terrible suffering that war inflicted on the German military cemetery at Vladso. More of her work can be seen in the nearby Käthe Kollwitz Tower in Koekelare, which houses seven of her graphic works. Her art is characterised by a deep compassion for all victims of poverty, exploitation and oppression. Her pacifism and abhorrence of war can be clearly felt throughout her works. The tourist information centre located in the same building sells postcards featuring her work. A museum guide is also available.
