War Cemetery in Kamień nad Jaśliska - War cemetery from the First World War period, located on the Kamień mountain above the village of Jaśliska in the Dukla commune in the Podkarpackie Voivodeship. The cemetery is located in the Low Beskids to the south-east of Jasliska, on the south-eastern slope of the Kamień hill in a place called Czereniny, near the border post 134/2. The cemetery has a surface of 320 m and is built on a rectangular plan, surrounded by a fence made of wooden poles. The entrance creates a wooden gate. The main element of the cemetery is a symbolic grave made of stones and a bell made of a cannon shell. The appearance of the cemetery indicates that after the preliminary order of the battlefield in the summer of 1915, the forest necropolis was not covered by the action of building cemeteries in the fashion of Western Galicia. Probably, it happened because the front quickly departed to the east, and after the Bolshevik revolution (October revolution) in Russia came the end of World War I and the disintegration of the Austro-Hungarian Monarchy and the remoteness of the headquarters of the Central Galicia military command, which at that time had headquartered in Przemyśl. There are 6 mass graves on the cemetery. They buried Russian soldiers and Austro-Hungarian soldiers who fell on the slopes of Kamień (859 m above sea level) above Jasliska in 1914-1915, during the so-called "Battles for the Pass". During World War I there were fierce battles between the Russians and Austrians about the main ridge of the Carpathians, on the mountain top there was a bloody fight for bayonets, hundreds of soldiers fighting in the army died in the clashes. The area around the cemetery on the Polish and Slovak sides is a remnant of a vast battlefield from that period, with a difficult to determine number of individual and collective graves hidden in trenches under the prisms of stones. The facility is one of many forest cemeteries located on the main ridge of the Carpathians, covering the remains of thousands of fallen soldiers. In 2002, Roman Frodym called the general gravedigger of West Galicia and the forester Leszek Gęborys from the Rymanów Forest District located and marked the area of cemetery quarters. In the autumn of 2003, tourists from the Jasło group "GIN" together with foresters from the Rymanów Forest District fenced the quarters with poles, erected a stone obelisk topped with a Maltese cross. On the gate they wrote the sentence: "Every war is last, hoping for a creator with hope." They also set up an enameled information board with the sentence "In conflict, death, reconciled." They put together bones here, no matter who they were, what they had meant so far, but that they were faithful. A bell made of an original cannon shell hangs on a nearby tree, reminiscent of its tragic character with the sentence: "Give us the names of the fallen in battle and suffering." On the stone came the fame of our life and death. The dedication of the cemetery was made on December 20, 2004 by Józef Konieczko, curate from Jasliska. Around the soldier's cross and on the graves, for two years, tourists have been laying stones found on the trail as a response to the call for the need to commemorate the victims of the war.
