National Liberation Memorial

The Schumann’s Eck was a strategically important crossroad during the Battle of the Bulge and cost many American and German soldiers’ lives. On the occasion of the 50th anniversary of the liberation of Luxembourg, the National Liberation Memorial was inaugurated at this location. In the woods at Schumann’s Eck, a memorial trail leads along the foxholes to a further monument, called Massegraf (mass grave), which is located at the exact spot where more than 160 German soldiers and some American soldiers were buried temporarily.
