Ich hatt’ einen Kameraden (Waffen-SS)


Men of SS-Panzergrenadier-Regiment 25 erect temporary grave crosses for the dead along the walls of Ardenne Abbey during the first days of the Normandy Invasion. Those who fell were generally buried first at site in the blood-drenched soil of Normandy. During the few pauses in the battle, members of the division cared for the graves of their fallen comrades.
