Cemetery of Soviet Officers in Wroclaw - war necropolis of Soviet officers who died or died as a result of wounds and diseases sustained during the siege of Wrocław in 1945. 763 Soviet officers were buried here, including 69 unknown from the first and last names, mainly from the 6th Ukrainian First Front Army under the command of Gen. Vladimir Gluzdowski. Among the buried are also two German anti-Nazis: Horst Viedt and Josef Wagner, who died during the subversive action on May 6, 1945. The cemetery is often called the "cemetery of Soviet soldiers." This is a mistake, because soldiers (not officers), killed in the same period, are buried in a different place in Wrocław (Cemetery of Soviet Soldiers in Skowronia Góra). [source: Wikipedia, 1784809]

The cemetery is located between Karkonoska and Wyścigowa streets on a plot of 5.3 ha in the shape of a triangle with an extended base. The necropolis is characterized by a strictly laid out geometrical arrangement, the main element is a gloriette designed in 1947 by Roman Feliński, consisting of five interconnected columns, situated on a high pedestal with a sculpture carved in granite. Gloriettes lead two symmetrically located tree alleys towards the side entrances. Between the alleys and the main entrance there are two identical quarters divided into burial fields separated by a hedge net. In the middle of both quarters, in the shape of a circle, there are obelisks made of marble. The main entrance is decorated with two cannons, while the side entrances of four tanks, being during the fights on equipping 6 armies of the First Ukrainian Front. One of the tanks, number 212, in the spring of 1945 was destroyed by the Germans on the corner of Hallera and Gajowicka streets. [source: Wikipedia, 1784809]
The construction of the cemetery began in April 1945, when the fighting was still in progress. The current shape of the cemetery gained in 1947, the author of the project was Tadeusz Ptaszycki. In later years, conservation work took place several times, including in 1962 gravestones from black stone to terrazzo were mentioned. In 1985, a plaque dedicated to the memory of Gen. Ivan Połbin, the highest-ranking officer, who died in the battles for Wrocław, and the remains that he could not find was uncovered. File: Cm of radz Wroc bramag.jpg [source: Wikipedia, 1784809]
