The Harvard Memorial Church honors students from Harvard who fought and died in World War I. The main memorial hall was built to memorialize the British and American students. After a great controversy arose, a memorial marker was placed to honor four German students who fought for the Kaiser and who entered the war and died before the USA entered the war. It is written in Latin and found in the back corner of the main sanctuary. This controversy over the German memorial is the subject of the best-selling novel The End of Innocence.
