Lorraine Cemetery

Situated about 1.2 kilometers (.75 miles) north of the town of St. Avold (in the Department of the Moselle), this 113.5-acre cemetery contains the remains of 10,489 American soldiers.

The Memorial, which stands on a plateau to the west of the burial area, contains ceramic operations maps with narratives and service flags. High on the exterior front wall is the large figure of St. Nabor, the martyred Roman soldier, overlooking the silent host. On each side of the Memorial are the Tablets of the Missing, on which are inscribed the names of 444 Americans who gave their lives in the service of their country, but whose remains were not recovered or identified.

Directions.

By car from St. Avold (approximately 1.2 kilometers, or .75 miles): Take Highway N 33 north out of St. Avold for about 1.2 kilometers (.75 miles); the entrance to the cemetery is on the right.

By car from Bitche (approximately 65.3 kilometers, or 40.5 miles): Follow the N 62 Highway west from Bitche to Sarreguemines for about 32 kilometers (19.2 miles); drive through Sarreguemines to the west about 4 kilometers (2.5 miles) and proceed on the D 910 west toward Farebersviller and St. Avold.
