Description
The cemetery covers an area of about 6 ares. It was built on the plan of a pentagon according to the design of Robert Motki. The metal entrance gate is located on the west side. The central monument has the shape of a truncated pyramid on top of which a concrete cross has been placed. Originally it was a wooden cross. On the pedestal there is a plaque with a German-language inscription:
In translation into Polish: The faithful in need - blessed in death. On both sides of the monument, in three rows there are individual graves of soldiers, marked with concrete steles with German and Russian Austrian crosses on them. During one of the renovations, the torn crosses were attached without paying attention to the nationality of the buried soldier, and it happened that on the tombstone of an unknown Russian soldier a cross of the German design was affixed. Most of the name plates have been preserved. [source: Wikipedia, 3211613]
