In the mid-fifties, this war graves site was developed by the Volksbund Deutsche Kriegsgräberfürsorge e.V. (German War Graves Commission) for the fallen of World War II after it was commissioned to do so by the German government.
The Volksbund has to rely on donations and contributions for the maintenance and care of this site.
In international youth camps, young Europeans help to care for the site whilst at the same time building bridges of understanding.
In 1953, the first youth camp was held, laying the foundation stone for the Volksbund youth work. Lommel has been the site of a youth community centre since 1993.
