Site of the heavily defended German position known as The Labyrinth. Some 37,000 burials as well as over 8000 in one mass grave.

The Labyrinth was the scene of one of the most terrible fighting in the first two years of the war. An underground fortress with access to scores of ferro-concrete blockhouses. It spread over some 30 acres.

As you say a chilling place but somehow somewhat serene now.
