About German El Alamein Cemetery

The German El Alamein Cemetery is the final resting place of 4,200 German soldiers who died in the Battle of El Alamein. This battle, part of the World War II North Africa Campaign, took place in 1942 and was a major victory for the Allies against the German and Italian forces, ending their presence in Egypt.

The German El Alamein Cemetery is quite different from the other cemeteries in the area as it is built to look like a fortress.
