    Default Polish War Cemetery Bologna, 24 April 2010

    Polish War Cemetery in Bologna, 24 April 2010, 65th anniversary of the liberation of the town.
    Unfortunately, due to continuous rain, the religious service was not celebrated in the cemetery, but in the nearby church of San Lazzaro di Savena.
    After the mass the rain stopped and the "Appell" was held in the cemetery.
    I enclose some photos taken a few hours ago.
