War cemetery in Dobbiaco/Toblach
During World War I Austrians fought against Italians in the Dolomiti di Sesto. Behind the Croda dell’Acqua rock there used to be the military hospital and the main first aid area of the Austrians. Those who died here were buried immediately, regardless of their origins and nationality, on the field directly next to it: in such manner, the war cemetery Sorgenti originated.
