The fate of the cemetery
After World War II, cemeteries from the First World War were not taken care of. They were naturally destroyed by weather and vegetation factors, and there were also acts of vandalism. Care for them has been started for them since the 90's . Cemetery No. 267 has been preserved in quite good condition. The fence pipes have disappeared, wooden crosses have been destroyed, but fence posts, tombstones, a central monument and nameplates with partially faded names have been preserved. The cemetery was thoroughly renovated. According to R. Frodym, there was still a statue of Christ on the cross, there is no one on the new cross . The cemetery is regularly cared for and in 2015 is in very good condition. [source: Wikipedia, 1533258]
