Netherlands American Cemetery

This American military cemetery was created in 1944 by the 9th American Army. Near the entrance, a small museum tells the story of some episodes from the war. The names of 1,722 who disappeared are inscribed on the walls. In the cemetery dominated by a high tower containing a chapel, 8,301 soldiers who fell when breaking the Siegfried line rest under crosses spread out in arcs.
