Wir haben vergessen,

die hinterbliebenen.

Wir sind leer.

Based on the 1757 painting 'Fredrich The Great adresses his generals before the battle of Leuthen' by German painter Adolph Menzel. The painting was destroid by Friedrich the Great himself, not being pleased of how he was portrayed by Menzel. He had himself erased from the painting and had all the eyes of the other painted faces poked out.
