Description of the cemetery
It is a small L-shaped cemetery. Originally, its fence was a wooden fence. This fence no longer exists. A completely new fence was made in a modern form of concrete posts and a fence mesh. The entrance is also through a modern iron gate, from where a wide alley leads to the cross. On its sides there are two rows of tombstones in the form of concrete plinths, on which crosses made of steel flat bars were crowned with metal, tin roofs. At the joining of the arms they have tin nameplates. There are two types of these crosses: two-armed (lotarian) and one-armed (Latin). In the side arm of the cemetery there are three other crosses. These are taller, made of steel flat bars, two-arm crosses, at the base having a frame in which the plate is placed. The main decorative element is located on the west side of the cemetery, a large wooden cross set on a concrete pedestal. It is a Latin cross topped with semicircular glory. It is made of many wooden elements connected with steel rims J. Drogomir, Poles in Western Galicia 1914-1915 (1918): lists of fallen and dead buried in 400 military cemeteries in Western Galicia.

They all died in May 1915 during the offensive of the combined Austro-Hungarian and German troops, known as the Battle of Gorlice.

The fate of the cemetery
In 1915, after winning the battle at Gorlice and driving the Russians further east, the Austro-Hungarian monarchy proceeded to the construction of cemeteries. After World War II, unfortunately, cemeteries from the First World War were not cared for. They were naturally destroyed by natural factors, and there were also acts of vandalism Cemetery No. 244 was thoroughly renovated. Its original appearance has been restored; new crosses and tin nameplates. The fence was also made quite anew, but not in accordance with the original assumptions. In 2015, the cemetery is in very good condition . [source: Wikipedia, 3589763]
