More of the Canadian Sector

From the cemetery we traveled to a few other significant areas. First up was Authie a small village where a number of Canadian soldiers were killed and their bodies left in the street. A local doctor attempted to provide assistance to some of the soldiers , but he too was killed.

Next up was an area called Hells Corners. Canadian Soldiers were held up here for a month by German forces before they could make any advance.

From here we went to The Ardenne Abbey. Where a number of Canadian prisoners were brought here and executed on July 7th and 8th.

This is what The Ardenne Abbey looks like today. If you follow the Ardenne Abbey link above you can see what it looked like in 1944.

Authie France where soldiers were shot against the building. You can see the white pock marks from the bullets.
