The fate of the cemetery
The Austrians built war cemeteries even during the war, when after the victorious battle near Cracow and the battle of Limanowa, the Russians were forced out of these areas and the front moved further east. They were to be a place of patriotic meetings. After World War II, the importance of the cemetery in the awareness of the society and then authorities decreased. The cemetery was naturally destroyed. It was only in the 1980s that awareness of the need to protect began to grow . The cemetery in Jadowniki is preserved in good condition. It was renovated, there was a plaque with the translation of the inscription on the Polish language, decorative plants were planted in front of the monumental walls. [source: Wikipedia, 3064869]
