    Default Verdun

    Hi fellow collectors,
    I'm interested in seeing some original photos taken in Verdun France, WWI and WWII era. Mainly pics from 'fort Douaumont' and 'l'Ossuaire de Douaumont'.

    Recently I bought two pics that were taken from these places, but they still have to arrive.

    Regards

    L'Ossuaire de Douaumont is really in my opinion one of the most poignant war memorials/'mausoleums' of them all. Chamber after chamber with the remains of fallen soldiers, German and French together. I'm afraid I don't have any pictures to share with you Ingrid.
