German war cemetery in La Cambe, Normandy, France


Posted: , Last update: January 6 2016, in Cemeteries, D-Day Normandy. No Comments

A very impressive war cemetery. 20.000 dead soldiers of whom very young are buried here. These soldiers came from the later drafts of the SS. Tank commander Michael Wittmann lies buried here amongst them. Recently found remains of German soldiers throughout Normandy are buried here in the center of this cemetery, where a large hill gives them their final resting place.

At the entrance of La Cambe there is a map with the lay-out of the graves
