German War Cemetery Vladslo

After World War II it was decided to merge almost all German war graves from the First World War in West Flanders together in four major cemeteries: Hooglede, Vladslo, Langemarck and Menen.

The German war cemetery Vladslo contains 25,644 graves from World War I.

The cemetery Vladslo is very famous for its impressive statue "Grieving Parents" by Käthe Kollwitz, which she made to commemorate her son who is buried here.
