On the occasion of the German National Day of Mourning the German War Graves Commisison and the German Consulate General in Cape Town had invited you to a public memorial service and a wreath laying ceremony. Since 1942, five soldiers of the Africa Corps have been laid to rest at the Woltemade cemetery in Maitland/Cape Town. The memorial service was opened by a string quartet with learners of the German International School Cape Town, conducted by former school teacher Erika Naumann. A bugler of the South African Navy also contributed to the music with the song „Ich hatt' einen Kameraden“.
