Douaumont Ossuary, Verdun, France

Ossuaire de Douaumont, Verdun, France
We arrived late in the day to the Ossuary, so I only took these photos of the building which is quite impressive. The ossuary is a memorial containing the bones of soldiers who died on the battlefield during the Battle of Verdun in World War I.
