The church of Emm. Robert Schouler Robert Schouler
   
The parish church of Metzeral-Sondernach (St Blaise) rebuilt in 1931 under the leadership of Abbot Martin Béhé on the ruins of a chapel from the 15th century was dedicated to the Virgin (Our Lady of Sorrows and our Lady of the Snows), and finally a memorial dedicated to fallen soldiers of 14/18 in the Vosges and in particular during the Battle of Metzertal in June 1915. Its name comes from the Emm name of the hill on which the shrine was erected evoking the legend of Emma and Roland of Roncesvalles. This war has paid a heavy price in the valley. Thus almost all the villages were destroyed, there remained only ruins. Very hard fighting took place on many sites today become places of pilgrimage. I was so touched by the headstones in the church showing young soldiers who lost their lives on our soil of Alsace that I wanted to pay tribute to his boys, and that is what has motivated this painting ..
