Haunting WW I Cemeteries Send Powerful Message (Europe)

Breaking News

The war cemeteries of the Western Front are as well-maintained as if they had been built this year. Their poignant message of peace is equally fresh.

World War I ended 89 years ago in November 1918, only a handful of veterans are still alive and family memories of the uncles, fathers and grandfathers who fought are fading fast.
