The memorial garden for war correspondents is tasteful and respectful. I wish there was some kind of visitors' center with biographical data on those memorialized. Worth a visit.

Truly thought provoking memorial to those war correspondents killed whilst letting the world know. Each year seems to have greater and greater numbers killed, but I suspect this may be because of better information. 1954 records Robert Capa who was on the beaches on D-Day...More

This memorial consists of a shaded walk between standing stones commemorating all the reporter lost in areas of conflict. Quite amazing how many names there are.

We accidentally found this and as it covers from 1950`s to present day it was very interesting. My daughter even found the Paris journalists from me suis Charlie . Beautifully maintained.

An easy walk from the middle of town, this tribute is moving and eye opening. Spending time in the war museum, cemetery and the memorial was a perfect way to spend a pretty fall afternoon.

Beautiful, emotional, quite unique and lovingly maintained. The columns with named of war zone journalists killed while covering battles is chronological. Sad that almost every year has some names. Enlightening to see how the hot spots shift geographically, but produce equally tragic results.
