German War Cemetery Futa-Pass

Futa-Pass German war cemetery is the largest war cemetery in Italy, with 30,653 graves.

It is located on a summit near the Futa-pass. At the end of the Second World War the German defence line ‘Gothic Line’ was located here. On 21 April 1945, after heavy fights, the Allies managed to break trough.

After the war, German graves were brought here together from a large area.
