Description

This in one of 4 German World War I cemetaries in Belgium. On this site are buried the remains of about 25000 young German soldiers who died in (among other Battles) the Battle for Passchendaele (oct-nov 1917). In about 2 weeks 250000 allied and 210000 German soldiers were killed. In that time the allies moved their frontline by a miserable 8 kilometers. Every stone in the picture bears the names of the soldiers buried underneath, About 20 names per stone. It was very impressive. The statue in the right of the picture was made by the mother of one of the soldiers buried in this cemetary.
