The German Cemetery At La Cambe

On the way back to Honfleur from Utah Beach, we stopped at the German cemetery near La Cambe, which had a much more somber appearance than the American cemetery at Colleville, the somberness perhaps enhanced by the rain.  This building is the cemetery's front entrance.

A plaque identifies the cemetery, in German and French.

In the middle of the cemetery is this artificial hill.

The gravestones included crosses in rows of five.

Most of the graves were marked by ground-level stones, such as this one.
