Ysselsteyn, German War Cemetery Netherlands

Ysselsteyn is the largest German war cemetery in the world.

Ysselsteyn German war cemetery is now the only German war cemetery in the Netherlands as after World War II most of the German fatalities were concentrated there. There are still some places in the Netherlands which hold German war graves, one such place is Vorden.

Since 1976 it is administered by the German War Graves Commission, the Volksbund Deutsche Kriegsgräberfürsorge.
