I was there by myself. Nobody else around so I had lots of time to think of those poor young men who gave so much for us. Very Surreal. Worth another visit.

A Canadian War Graves Commission cemetery where over 2000 Canadian soldiers buried. Lovingly cared for. Met a worman who is trying to gather stories of the buried. A short distance from Nijmegen accessible by 2 buses from Central bus station.

We were here on May 6 the day after Liberation Day. All graves were well tended with plays, flowers and vocational Canadian flags. Apparently each grave is adopted and tended by a family. And we were told that there was a waiting list for families...More

As soon as you walk over the gate, it's just silence. This Canadian war cemetary is very impresive. It is a well kept graveyard. Make a visit when you're in the neighbourhood.
