A mountaintop memorial is a symbol of Franco-German reconciliation

The Vieil Armand, or Hartmannswillerkopf in German, in eastern France is a World War I memorial to the 30,000 German and French troops who died near there in the trenches, battling for control of the mountain peak. It has become a symbol of Franco-German reconciliation, but the two countries still have very different ways of honouring what happened in the war.
