the below 2 lines may indicate something but cant read it
8/18/2017 5:55 PM It is the Wall of the Israelites at Fleury-devant-Douaumont at the Verdun battlefield in France.

On the bottom, it reads:

"Aux Francais. Allies et Volontaires Etrangers Israelites. -1914-Morts Pour la France-1918-"

I translate that as "To the Jewish French, Allied and Foreign Volunteers" "1914-Died for France-1918."

The monument was unveiled on 19 Jun 1938, and is still standing. It wasn't destroyed by the Germans during WWII.
