Drove through Belgium to get here. As with other Commonwealth War Graves, it was beautifully kept. Park like grounds were so respectful of those buried there. Visited the grave of a relative buried there. So moved by the site.

We visited the cemetery because we were visiting the National Liberation Museum. Thankfully, we have no family buried here but as Canadians we wanted to visit so our sons could see some of the sacrifices the soldiers made

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.

We were staying in The Hague, we took the train to Nijmegen, then the bus to Groesbeek for a visit at the Liberation Museum. The bus goes by the cemetery, it would be approximately a 5 minute walk from where the bus stops... More
