After visiting numerous WWII sites in Normandy, we decided to visit the German Cemetery, La Cambe. In the WWII military exhibits that we’ve seen on this trip most have Nazi war memorabilia. There are no statements about right or wrong. There are just the facts...More
Over 22 000 soldiers are buried here. Many in shared graves, many with no known identity. The basalt crosses are a sombre reminder of the futilities of war. Last resting place of tank ace Michael Wittman and his tank crew.
