------

During the First World War from 1914 to 1918, many young men from Rimsberg lost their lives in France and Russia. Also the Second World War did not bring home many male Rimsberger from the operational areas in Russia and France. The names of the fallen and missing fatherland fighters from Rimsberg can still be read today on a memorial plaque at the Old School.
