Notre Dame de Lorette Cemetery


The memorial at Notre Dame de Lorette commemorates the bloody fighting in January - March 1915, in which the French infantry eventually held the line and more or less saved their country. A determined German attack initially penetrated the line, but in the end the Germans were driven back.
The cemetery has 20,000 white crosses, in remembrance of over 120,000 men from both sides who died in this sector.
