German Military Cemeteries in Europe

Postby pofoka » 02 Nov 2013 21:31

Honoring those who served and died for their Nation and Country during World War II.
remember and honor those who have died serving in the armed forces. It seems the least we can do, particularly as we remain engaged in war today.

We all should stop what we’re doing and honor the war dead by reflecting on what we can do to give something back, and make the world a better place — for our families, our communities and for every other person sharing this planet.

"To live in the hearts
of those you leave behind
is never to die..."

German military cemetery Kharkov, Ukraine

During World War II, Kharkiv was the site of several military engagements. During World War II, four battles took place for control of the city: The city was captured and recaptured by Nazi Germany on 24 October 1941; there was a disastrous Red Army offensive that failed to capture the city in May 1942; the city was successfully retaken by the Soviets on 16 February 1943, captured for a second time by the Germans on 15 March 1943 and then finally liberated on 23 August 1943. Seventy percent of the city was destroyed and tens of thousands of the inhabitants were killed.

This is a German military cemetery is part of the cemetery in Kharkov. The military cemetery was established to connect the German military graves in the region together. At the end of 2008 there were 38,927 graves. The result should be about 40. 000 graves.
