War Cemetery No. 202 - Tarnów - closed, Austrian war cemetery from the period of World War I, built by the War Cemetery Department of the C. and K. Military Command Office in Krakow in its district VI Tarnów. The cemetery was created in 1914 and is located in the northern part of Tarnów. The street is limited. Starodąbrowska from the east and ul. Szpitalna and al. Our Lady of Fatima from the west. It is a former, nineteenth-century garrison cemetery of the Austrian army, where during the Great War people were killed in battles near Tarnów in 1914 and in the beginning of 1915, and soldiers who died in Tarnów hospitals and Lazarets. 1485 soldiers were buried there: 680 Austro-Hungarian, 9 German and 796 Russian. Names of almost half of them are known. The designer of the cemetery was Heinrich Scholz. In the interwar period, the cemetery was not looked after, it was overgrown with grass and destroyed. During World War II, the German army set up an anti-aircraft defense station at the cemetery, destroying the entrance gate. After the war, the work of destroying the cemetery was completed and in the mid-1960s, the rest of the equipment was removed from the area and the area of the necropolis was set off, not exhuming the ashes of the fallen. In 2011, the City began the reconstruction of the cemetery. The gate and fencing from the west side and the obelisk in the center of the necropolis were reconstructed. In 2015, the cemetery was entered into the register of monuments of the Małopolska province. At the cemetery, a family of a soldier who died during World War I and buried here, from Modra, in today's Slovakia, set up a small cross. Placed on it a plate with the names of soldiers coming from this city, resting in this place.
