Sad but beautiful

It makes one sad to view so many headstones of the fallen but the site is beautifully kept and it sure made me appreciate the sacrifice made by so many.

As a Canadian born with Dutch roots, this was a moving reminder of what my ancestors had gone through and what young Canadians had sacrificed.

Definately worth a visit to remember those he gave their lives during the second world war. A very sad and humbling experience to be stood amongst the graves which are immaculately kept.

Peaceful and well maintained cemetery. Gives you an impression of the huge number of casualties. A good educational experience for children. A must see in combination with the Liberation Museum.

Visiting a few days after Dutch Liberation Day (Second World War), this was a beautiful but grim reminder of the consequences of war. It is heartwarming that ~ 70 years on and a few generations removed ~ the Dutch people honour their Canadian liberators as much as ever. Many of the grave markers have an epitaph chosen by family.

My visit during Liberation day, May 5th, 2015 was truly an emotional one. As I put Canadian flags on random graves, I was struck at just how young the men were. One in particular caught me of guard. The grave stone read that the soldier had been in the Netherlands for only 2 weeks away from Canada, and was killed.

On the way to/from the Liberation Museum be sure and visit the cemetery for a moving example of the sacrifices that were made to free this country in WWII. Not as large as the cemeteries near Normandy, but impressive to be sure. Complements what you learned at the Museum.
