Cassino War Cemetery, Cassino Reviews - Write a Review
We came to the cemetery on a family pilgrimage of 13 people to visit the grave of my husband's grandfather who was killed in the Battle of Montecassino in 1944. I was incredibly moved by my experience. It was so very meaningful to find his grave and to spend some quiet time there. I also spent a long time walking amongst the other graves and reading who the Allied servicemen were, their battalions and where and when they fell. I was particularly moved by the graves which were grouped together - for all of the members of Air Force flight crews who died together when their planes were shot down. There are engraved walls too with names of the servicemen who were lost with no body found to bury and some other striking memorial structures too. There is a little sanctuary space over on the left hand wall of the cemetery with a Visitors' book where you can mark your visit and leave a message. It was incredibly hot when we visited - there are some trees to rest in a bit of shade and the sanctuary gives a reflective, cooler roofed space. "Enjoy" would be the wrong word, but I had a very emotional and meaningful visit which meant a lot to me. It was quite something to be able to show my children their great grandfather's grave and explain to them the bravery and sacrifices made for us to give us our lives and freedom today. I highly recommend a visit it
Absolutely remarkable. Many signs explaining the history, well kept, beautiful.
Very nice location and everything is well kept to honor the young soldiers that lost their lives. Very proud to see the many different nationalities supporting, especially Canadian support.
Here is where enemy dead soldiers lie and rest. They came in Italy to invade it, they bombed our cities, our houses, our schools, our monuments, they destroyed Montecassino Abbey, and they made every kind of terrible violence against civilians in Ciociaria region, that is just behind Cassino. They were our enemies, and they still are. We'll never forget their cruelty.
I think that the experience of visiting the war cemetery might be different for everybody, depending on their nationality, age and willingness to feel into the atrocities of a war. For me it was a huge experience of sadness and anger: so many young men had to die because of the craziness of a dictator! It is a deep experience to see all the gravestones lined up in all directions. It seems endless, the testimony of wasted lives, of suffering, horror and death.
