„We lost our lives here, but found them again there. On the holy mountain of the Lord.“ Many mountaineers have lost their lives on the Matterhorn and in the mountains around Zermatt. And many of them are buried in Zermatt – in the cemetery of the Anglican church of St. Peter's and in the Catholic cemetery. A few years ago, the council decided to restore the gravestones and to exhibit them at the parish church of St. Mauritius. There is a memorial in the Catholic cemetery for Zermatt mountain guides who were killed in accidents.
"Hier verloren wir das Leben, dort fanden wir es wieder. Auf dem heiligen Berg des Herrn." Viele Bergsteiger haben am Matterhorn und in der Bergwelt um Zermatt ihr Leben verloren.
