The fate of the cemetery
After World War II, cemeteries from the First World War were not cared for. The wooden elements of the cemetery were destroyed in time . The first renovation was made against the original appearance of the cemetery. It was fenced with a contemporary metal mesh, and there were no crosses on the graves, only concrete slabs with no signs. During the last renovation financed by the Austrian Black Cross, the appearance of the cemetery was reconstructed in line with the assumptions of Heinrich Scholz . An information board was installed at the entrance gate of the cemetery. [source: Wikipedia, 2764372]
