The Great Passion Play in Euroka is well known in the US far across the borders of Arkansas. The play takes place in an amphitheatre with 4.000 seats, involves 170 actors and a number of animals. The area also includes two museums and other facilities with a deep religious background. The ensemble is dominated by a 20 meter high Christ of the Ozarks-statue.

From the beginning of the 1990s a monument made of elements from the Hinterlandmauer is standing at the bottom of the statue. It was built as a tribute to the spirit of all people who risk their lives to believe and practice their Christian faith.
