Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The German War Graves Commission (Volksbund Deutsche Kriegsgräberfürsorge in German) is responsible for the maintenance and upkeep of German war graves in Europe and North Africa. Its objectives are: "acquisition, maintenance and care of German war graves"; "tending to next of kin"; "youth and educational work"; and "preservation of the memory to the sacrifices of war and despotism".It was founded as a private charity on December 16 1919 as the recognised [German] Commission under the war graves provisions of Article 224 of the Treaty of Versailles. By the 1930s, the Commission had established numerous cemeteries for German World War I dead. During World War II, the Volksbund's work was mostly carried out by the Wehrmacht's own graves service.
