Esbjerg 009 – War Grave Memorial

At the Fovrfeld Cemetary, 280 Allied airmen, 1150 German soldiers and 151 German refugees are buried. They are all casualties of World War Two.

The large number of white headstones (for the Allied casualties) and grey crosses (for the German casualties) make this the largest War Grave Memorial in Scandinavia.

The War Grave Memorial is found at Gravlundvej, 6710 Esbjerg V.
