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.

Definately worth a visit to remember those he gave their lives during the second world war. A very sad and humbling experience to be stood amongst the graves which are immaculately kept.
