I was looking at a website called Traces of Evil which contains hundreds of "then and now" photographs of the Third Reich and the Second World War. While doing this, I found photographs of the First World War German military cemetery at Hooglede in Belgium. According to the site and according to Wikipedia as well, a small chapel was built at this cemetery in late 1937. Both sites indicate that the stones for the chapel came from the 1937 German pavilion at the Paris Exposition.

I was surprised, too, Randy. It was a random discovery although I have sometimes wondered if that pavilion had any sort of after life. It appears that it does.
