Memorial to fallen Danish/German soldiers in World War I


Århus, Denmark (DK)
More than 20,000 Danes from Sonderjylland were at war for Germany during World War I. Sonderjylland became German after the Prussian War 1864.

4,140 Danes fell during the war and all are remembered here by name.

Some have found their final resting place in German War Cemeteries in France and Belgium. 75 in the Danish War Cemetery in Braine, France. Some were exhumed and reburied in Denmark.

But a lot of the 20,000 are listed as missing.
