The Rozelieures national cemetery holds the remains of soldiers who died during the battles of the Trouée de Charmes (or Charmes Breach). Created in 1921, it is a testament to the extreme violence of the clashes of summer 1914 that took place in the Lorraine region. Developed until 1923 in order to bring together the bodies that were initially buried in the temporary cemeteries in the communes of Borville, Giriviller, Vallois and Maattexey, this cemetery holds the bodies of 1 154 soldiers, 915 of whom lie in two ossuaries. This place of remembrance is dominated by an imposing memorial lantern, to remember the units involved in the Rozelieures combats. Nearby, numerous monuments remind us of these battle feats.
