Streets of New York

The summer break is over and, well, it’s pretty obvious where I’ve spent my time. I’ve brought back home around 2,000 pics, so there’s plenty of material to show you during the next weeks. Here are some first impressions. Enjoy!

Cemetery of Douaumont Ossuary: 15,000 french soldiers from the Great War lie buried here on the former battlefield of Verdun, where in 1916, within around 300 days, approximately 230,000 men have been killed.

If you are interested in learning more about this part of the European history, you should have a look at verdun-douaumont.com. This website not only offers information about the events at that time, but it is also linked to databases, which contain the names, documents, and burial places of identified soldiers.
