Alveringem

 

 

Next to the church of Alveringen is the cemetery. You find the honorary park in a setting of greenery paying tribute to eight fallen heroes, all born in Alveringem.

They are in the company of Cyriel Verschaeve, the poet-priest ("Here are their bodies as seeds in the sand ..."), who was the village pastor in Alveringem during the First World War.

He was the spiritual adviser of the Front Movement in that World War.
