During World War II the Germans had some strong fortifications in the Esbjerg area. After the war a lot of German refugees stay in the area. As a result of this there is a rather large German military and refugee cemetery in Esbjerg - also called Fourfelt Military War Graves. Next to the German cemetery there is a large Commonwealth War Graves cemetery. At this cemetery you find a lot of aircraft crews, who were shot down over Denmark during the war.
