German War Graves Wehrmacht Nienburg

The cemetery contains 58 burials of male and female military personal, of both German nationals (46) and foreign volunteers (6 Yugoslavs, 3 Dutch, 1 Hungarian and 1 of unknown nationality). Some of the German burials are reported to be civilians rather than military personnel. The names of the deceased are inscribed on small stone crosses with their date of birth and date of death. No other details, such as nationality or distinction between soldier or civilian, are given on the tombstones.
