  • Here was between 1915 and 1920 the largest evacuation hospital of the Ypres salient located! The visitor center tells the haunting story of this site. There are more than 10,000 victims buried here, including one woman, a nurse ... Here you will find victims with thirty different nationalities: British, French, Germans, Canadians, French, Chinese, Canadians, Australians, New Zealand veins ... In the visitor centre you learn all about hospital life and the construction of the cemetery

  • Subdued and with much respect one of the so many oorlogkerkhoven from WWI in the Westhoek visited. You come there silent, of so many young people-unnecessarily-their life left for us.
