The fate of the cemetery
After World War II, the importance of the cemetery in the awareness of the society and the then authorities decreased, because new, more recent cemeteries and dramatic stories of the new war came. The cemetery was naturally destroyed by weather and vegetation factors, and there were also acts of vandalism. It was only from the 1990s that more care was started for World War I cemeteries . Cemetery No. 262 has been renovated and is well-kept. However, he did not regain the original appearance. Originally, the fence consisted of concrete pillars connected by rows of three steel pipes. The cross on the central monument was wooden and crowned with semicircular glory. In the base it had the date 1915. The grave crosses were not placed on a common concrete slab, but each of them had a concrete pedestal . [source: Wikipedia, 3595791]
