Badgastein Things to Do: 16 reviews and 31 photos

 
 

Behind the little church of St Nicholas there is a graveyard, where the graves are actually only commemorative, because the bodies of these deads are not buried here. These men lost their lives in the II World War, most of them in Russia.
The folly of blood-thirsty tyrants sent these men to their deaths, and caused the deaths of many many others. Many words agaist wars have been written, but we tend to forget the equation war=innumerable graves.

Address: Behind the Nikolaus church

Review Helpfulness: 4.5 out of 5 stars
