Airborne Cemetery, Oosterbeek

  • Beautiful place and a very moving place to visit. Whenever we visit Friends in Germany we visit and place a poppy on family grave.
  • If you're looking at the history of operation Market Garden then you need to visit this war cemetery. This brings all the information in the museums together. At the end of it all it's about the young lives from around the globe and from different beliefs that were lost. I war there are no winners, just losers.
