  • After the American cemetery, is seized by this place sober, almost dark. the configuration of the graves brings a feeling of despondency and I felt a lot of compassion for all those soldiers. That they also rest in peace.

  • This German cemetery is impressive on implantation of graves and the number of the part. The soldiers are buried on both sides of the cross. There are two German generals and a stele for a Polish soldier as a 'personality'. This cemetery is worth the detour, too bad not having staff on the area to inquire about sponsoring a tree, or an explanation on the graves because some have been doing after the creation of the cemetery.
