Grave of Helmut Kämpfe

    The grave of Sturmbannführer Helmut Kämpfe in the German Military cemetery at Berneuil (about 170 kilometres west of Oradour-sur-Glane), on the N137 south of Saintes in Department 17, Charente Maritime. He has been buried here since March 1963, when he was moved from the Breuilaufa cemetery in the Haute-Vienne. According to the Volksbund Deutsche Kriegsgräberfürsorge (German War Graves Office) his place and date of death are respectively, Cheissoux and 10th June 1944. The cemetery at Berneuil needs care on its approach, as the N137 is straight and fast, with little advance notice of the entrance, which is on the left if you are heading south.
