The fate of the cemetery
Austrians built war cemeteries during the war. 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 PorÄ…bka Uszewska was largely destroyed. Only the concrete posts remained from the original fence. The cemetery was recently renovated, and the shrubs and trees that destroyed it were removed. He is also cared for on a regular basis. Below its lower end is the tombstone of a Soviet soldier buried here in 1945. There was a star on it, but it disappeared. [source: Wikipedia, 3056159]
