This German Cemetery makes you realise that there were also thousands of Germans who lost their lives. The German Cemeteries that I saw tended to be simpler and starker than those of the Allies. Forces you to think of the futility of war.

Lanhemark German War Cemetary West Flanders Belgium contains unknown graves and mass graves. Such a different memorial to Dieppe and other sites we paid respects at, there are two sides to every war. While we have ancestry that fought on the opposing sides we can...More

The Ypres area is dotted with war cemeteries, many of which are worthwhile visiting. This particular cemetery helps remembering that war means a huge loss of life, whether you were on the winning side or not. And whether you were young or old.

It wasn’t just British and Allied lives that were lost. This cemetery is for the thousands of students and old soldiers who were sent to the front line in 1914 and were killed by the British and Allied forces. A completely different type of cemetery...More

Like all cemeteries around Flanders you cannot help being moved by the sacrifices made on both sides of the Great War. Spotless and well maintained.

It serves as a German memorial, but with mass graves and little light along with disrepair and cracked headstones, it's not the nicest place to visit.

If you visit Tyne Cot, you see a bright, open cemetery, with white gravestones and colorful flowers. That is a cemetery of victors. Come to this cemetery to see the marked contrast that is the last resting place of the defeated. It is somber and...More
