The memorial consists of three parts. The centre is a plaque into which the main text of the memorial is engraved. The top part of the plaque is formed like the silhouette of Bad Wurzach Castle. An open frame encloses this centre. The open ends of the frame are bent to the front and connected with barbed wire, which makes the whole plaque more interesting. In addition the focus is drawn to the barbed wire which symbolizes the limited freedom of the internees. You can say that the frame is the fence which surrounded the castle. Below it there is a third plaque with the three words Freiheit, Liberté and Freedom. These are the languages of the prisoners who lived in the castle – French and British. The memorial is mounted on a wall or on a large stone.
