The cemetery was created during the First World War on the edge of the forest, most probably in the years 1916-1917 in the shape of an irregular polygon with an area of about 500 m suited to the relief of the area. Soldiers killed in December 1914 and in bayonet battles during the interruption of the Russian front during the Battle of Gorlice on May 5, 1915 were buried. The cemetery was designed by a Viennese architect and civil engineer, Lieutenant Johann Jäger, artistic director of the cemetery premises in the Jasło district. [source: Wikipedia, 857277]
A total of 146 soldiers were buried there, including: 29 Germans, including: 1 and 3 Grenadier Regiment and 3 Infantry Regiment, * 25 Austrians, 56 Wadowicki Infantry Regiment and 26 Field Battalion of Maribor, * 92 Russians (among them three Russian officers, including one in the rank of captain). In the cemetery there is an original, monumental stone wall topped with a Celtic cross with an inscription plate and a stone bench, the entrance gate preserved in its original shape and two concrete steles with cast-iron name plates. On the remaining graves during the renovation in 2004 were placed wooden stylized Romanian crosses with tin roofs. The entire cemetery is surrounded by a wooden fence made of sections of balustrades attached to stone poles. Large, monumental specimens of pedunculate oaks grow in its area. The facility is in very good condition. On the inscription plate located on the monument wall, an inscription in German is engraved:: Mit seines friedens Zauber der Wald, Uns mild umwelt,: die Wir im Kampf gefallen, knows Wir im Kampf gelegt. which in the Polish translation reads: "In the spell of peace, the forest gently surrounds us," Which one we have died in battle, just as we lived in battle. The object is informed by two information bars with inscriptions in German and Polish, one set at the exit from the national road No. 28 (Przemyśl-Wadowice) in Skołyszyn - largely reconstructed in 2013. The second original, Austrian at the intersection of the poviat Bączal-Skołyszyn from the municipal road, about 600 meters from the cemetery. [source: Wikipedia, 857277]
