12 tanker om “Glow of the past

        • The cemetery southeast of Nijmegen in the Netherlands you mentioed is unique in that many of the dead were brought here from nearby Germany. It is one of the few cases where bodies were moved across international frontiers. It is all fallen canadian soldiers of the Rhineland battles, who were buried in German battlefields, were re-interred here (except for one who is buried in Reichswald Forest War Cemetery). General Crerar, who commanded the canadian land forces in Europe, ordered that canadian dead were not to be buried in german soil.
          Thousands of dutch children tend the graves of the soldiers buried here as they do throughout the Netherlands too.
