In this episode of The Atlas Obscura Podcast, we visit a swath of land in Northern France that still bears scars of the destruction of World War I—destruction so bad that, in some cases, humans have never been allowed to return.

Our podcast is an audio guide to the world’s wondrous, awe-inspiring, strange places. In under 15 minutes, we’ll take you to an incredible site, and along the way you’ll meet some fascinating people and hear their stories. Join us daily, Monday through Thursday, to explore a new wonder with cofounder Dylan Thuras and a neighborhood of Atlas Obscura reporters.
