Thanks to all the extremely young guys who have given there lives . Shame they were ''on the wrong side'' . But still, one feels sad and overwhelmed by the utter stupidity of war....

We visited the cemetery with 2 couples and 1 child (9 years old). Driving up, I already caught my breath when I got a glimpse over the hedges of rows upon rows of crosses that stretch out into the distance. The numbers are staggering. 39000 graves are here. As you wander down, you can’t help but think about who they were, what were their dreams, what about their families.... you see graves of men who were the same age as you are now, have the same last name of someone you know, or shares the same birthday as your cousin. The cemetery is meticulously cared for. When you arrive, walk through the courtyard of the cafe, to the monument and up through one of the internal staircases to get an overview of the fields of graves. It’s a sobering moment.

It will always be impressive but if you go in fall or I’m wintwr it even gets a darker view and is incredible impressive.
Take a walk an recognise how many are unknown. That means family who don’t know where there father, sun or grandfather is hurried.
So visit this with teens and explain them what extremist ideas give. Whatever the idea is.

I do believe that a lot of the soldiers in the German Army did not have much choice about serving as my family in the UK at the time they had a forced conscription, a 2 year stint everyone had to do. This makes their sacrifices no less noble there are 2 sides to every war. Having visited the Allied Forces graves and memorials I thought it was important to pay respects to both sides.

It is sobering the staggering losses on both sides a whole generation of young soldiers.

Thoughts come to mind in a place like this. The honor of young men who lost their lives in WWII is astonishing and the place even offers educational camps for young students. May we learn from history...

Germany cemetery for soldiers fallen mostly in the second world war. It has a lovely peaceful feeling about it. Nice to walk and contemplate and remember.
