In the eastern city of Luxembourg there is a district called Hamm and there is an American war cemetery and an German war cemetery. At the american cemetery more than 5,000 soldiers are buried, including a female nurse. The majority of the soldiers died during the German Ardenner offensive from mid-December 1944 to mid-January 1945. In addition to the graves, there is a memorial chapel and two large wall maps. One shows the advance of the American forces from the landing in Normandy until the end of the war. The other American forces’ positions during the German Ardenner offensive. American General, George S. Patton, is buried in the cemetery. Patton died out of wounds he suffered in a car accident outside Mannheim, Germany, December 1945.

My comment:

The Cemetery with its white geometrically postioned crosses is reminiscent of the American war cemetery at Omaha Beach in Normandy, France.
