La Cambe

German Military Cemetery

The cemetery lies south of N 13. This site, originally an American cemetery, was given to the German government in 1948 after the American dead had been removed to the American cemetery overlooking Omaha Beach. La Cambe now contains over 21,222 German dead.
La Cambe stands in somber contrast to the American, British, and Canadian cemeteries in Normandy, with their open, garden and park-like appearances.  I recommend that you spend sometime visiting this cemetery and its Visitors Centre.

«Darkly rises the mound
Over the graves of the soldiers
Darkly stands God's Command
Over the dead of the War.
Yet brightly glows the sky
Above the towering crosses
More brightly still shines their comfort:
The final word is God's»
