Second World War Cemeteries

It is possible to visit many cemeteries of Second World War victims in the area including British, American, French and German ones. Bayeux, Saint-Manvieu and Ranville are among the largest British cemeteries in the area. The American cemetery in Colleville-sur-mer, near Omaha Beach, is especially large and a visit there can prove rather emotional. There are 9,386 graves in the cemetery – each one labelled with a white cross in perfectly straight lines. Another cemetery that is sure to make a lasting impression on anyone studying the Second Word War is the German cemetery in La Cambe, where over 20,000 Germans are buried in groups of five black crosses.
