Remember the fallen at Airborne Cemetery, a Commonwealth War Graves Commission cemetery and the final resting place of 1,759 men who died in World War II. This site, established in 1945, mostly holds the graves of Allied servicemen killed during the Battle of Arnhem, in which Allied troops attempted to cross the Rhine in 1944, or during the liberation of the city. Do not be surprised to see new grave markers; bodies are still being discovered in the surrounding area and are laid to rest among their comrades.

Airborne Cemetery Reviews
Beautifully well kept, quiet and thought-provoking. I was there for 15 minutes, walking between the rows, but I hardly saw anyone else. There is room to park. more »
Na het Airborne Museum ook de begraafplaats bezocht. Je moet er geweest zijn om te zien hoe mooi, maar ook indrukwekkend dit is. Het feit dat hier mensen liggen die gevochten hebben voor onze vrijheid... more »After the airborne Museum also visited the cemetery. You must have been there to see how beautiful, but also impressive this is. The fact that here people are lying who have fought for our freedom.. Respect.
If you're looking at the history of operation Market Garden then you need to visit this war cemetery. This brings all the information in the museums together. At the end of it all it's about the young lives from around the globe and from different beliefs that were lost. I war there are no winners, just losers.
A well tended cemetery that is starkly handsome but especially affecting when one realizes the obvious: nearly all the grave markers commemorate people born during the early twentieth century and who never saw the middle of the century. Such is war, and silence comes without saying.
