WW1 GRAVE MARKER

In the late 1950's 678 German War Cemeteries were abandoned and all human remains were put in one of 5 mass graves. The ground of the former cemeteries was reclaimed by local farmers and the grave markers ended up mainly as construction material or firewood. Buhnen Bernard's remains were transferred to the Langemark Studenten Friedhof and he now rests with 24,916 others. His marker survived.
