2. Ortisei War Memorial Marker
wurde nach dem 1.Weltkrieg als Stätte des Gedenkens an die 96 aus dem Pfarrbezirk St. Ulrich stammenden gefallenen und vermissten Soldaten errichtet. Nach dem 2.Weltkreig wurden die 83 Namen der 1939 bis 1945 Gefallen und Vermissten hinzugefugt.
Die Glocke auf dieser Kapelle ist eine Kopie des berühmten „cusé da Sacun”, wie die Grödner seit je her die alte Glocke – aufgrund ihrer schlanken Form – genannt haben. Der Legende nach wurde sie im Annatal gefunden und soll zur Burg Stetteneck gehört haben. Aufgrund der aktuellen historischen Untersuchungen wurde die Glocke aber eigens für die Glockengiessermeister, der sich Magister manfredinus nannte und um 1300 in Venedig tätig war. Zusammen mit der Glocke aus der Kirche in Wengen (Cadertal), die vom selben Meister stammt, gehört sie zu den zwei ältesten Glocken unseres Landes.
Die Glocke hing bis 1920 auf der St. Jakobskirche und wurde dann bloss als Zierde auf dieser Kapelle angebracht, weil sie wegen Sprunges nicht mehr gelääutet werden konnte. 2009 wurde sie aufgrund ihres historischen und kulturellen Wertes durch eine Kople ersetzt. Das Original ist im Kulturhaus nebenan ausgestellt.

aggiunger i nom di altre 83 vittime. L’attuale campana de questa cappella e una copia fedele de famoso “cusé da Sacun”, come i Gardenesi usano chiamare da sempre la vecchia campana, a causa della sua forma slanciata. Secondo la leggenda essa fu trovata in fondo alla Val d’Anna e sarebbe appartenuta al castello di Stetteneck.
Allo stato attuale della ricerche risulta invece che la campana fu appositamente realizzata per la chiesa di S.Giacomo, la frazione sopra Ortisei, da un famoso fonditore attivo intorno la 1300 a Venezia chiamato Magister Manfredinus. Assieme alla campana della chiesa di La Valle (Val Badia), realizzata dallo stesso maestro, essa è una della due campane più antiche della nostra Provincia. Nel 1920 la campana fu collcata in questa cappella, poiché, a causa di una crepa, non poteva piu essere suonata. Dato il suo rilevante valore storico culturale, nel 2009 si decise de sostituirla con una copia. L’originale é esposto nella vicina Casa di Cultura.

Sacun" as the Gardenians always called the old bell, because of its slender shape. According to legend, it was found in the bottom of the Val d'Anna and belonged to the castle of Stetteneck.
From the present state of research it appears that the bell was specially made for the church of St. James, by Magister Manfredinus, a famous Venetian caster active around 1300. Along with the bell of the church of La Valle (Val Badia ), made by the same bell master, it is one of the two oldest bells in our province. In 1920 the bell was removed from this chapel, since, due to a crack, it could no longer be rung. Given its significant historical and cultural value, in 2009 it was decided to replace it with a copy. The original is on exhibit in the nearby House of Culture.
