#19 of 83 in Things to do in Meuse
Mort-Homme is a commune in the Meuse department located in Lorraine. The site was used during the Battle of Verdun that took place in 1916. It has been unoccupied since then. The site, however, has a quaint presence which manages to captivate you at the very first glance. The huge landscape around the commune is also a noteworthy site because of the vastness that is spread far across. Today, the whole site is being maintained as a testimony to the war that took place. It has been officially designated as a village that died for France. A three-member municipal council appointed by the Meuse department manages the site today.

  • At the top of the hill a monument of a skeleton or fight French American and German soldiers. There are explanatory signs.

  • Getting there takes a little road but it's definitely worth it. The monument is in some ways a summary of the human tragedy of these places, on this side a path of peace along the same designed and put in place by French and German associations. Exciting for me
