Description: 21115. That's the impressive amount of fallen German soldiers burried at La Cambe (a tiny village between Bayeux and Carentan) in Normandy. The short-cut green grass and formations of black crosses make for a very special, sort of elusive atmosphere. At the centre of the graveyard a monument consisting of a 6 metre high cross is erected on top of a small hill. Opposite the entrance is an information center with a small exhibition.

A glimpse of the central monument.

Nowadays silence and serenity prevale.

Impressive through it's simplicity.
