A must visit for anyone touring the WW1 sites, this German memorial containing the remains of over 25,000 young men is in stark contrast to it’s British counterparts. With dark stones and multiple names per marker, there is a sense of great sadness and loss. This is made plain with the pair of sculptures entitled “Grieving Parents” by German artist Käthe Kollwitz who lost her youngest son to the war and is buried nearby.
