    Giant US Military Cemetery - if I remember correctly, this is American land left to the US by the French government for this cemetery. If you see the dream beach a few meters away, it is difficult to imagine what suffering must have happened here in 1944! In addition to the cemetery, there is also a museum - which describes the events of those days.

    Impressive & oppressive at the same time

    As a memorial to the many dead, such places are very important to this day. "Now you, lord, let your servant part in peace, as you said ..." it says in the so-called "hymn of praise of Simeon" (Luke Gospel chapter 2, verse 29). Those buried here, however, are not divorced in peace, but have become victims of war and tyranny. The most important function of the military cemeteries or war cemeteries is therefore to remind people of the lasting preservation of peace.
