A Piece of WWII Local History

Another piece of WWII local history…

After we posted a photo of the chapel and cemetery next to the Chateau in the snow, a faithful reader wrote. He reflects on family and friends laid to rest there and adds:

“Il y a eu près de l’entrée du cimetière des soldats allemands (tués par la Résistance) enterrés près de la grille d’entrée principale.
Les corps ont été ramenés en Allemagne dans les années 60.”

(“Next to the entrance to the cemetery were buried a number of German soldiers, killed by the Resistance. The bodies were carried back to Germany in the 1960s.”)

Dangerous and dark days in Normandy, even in peaceful Courtomer.
