The fate of the cemetery
In the interwar period, the cemetery was still in good condition as new. School youth tidied up the cemetery before the All Saints Day and lighted the candles, but the cemetery was naturally destroyed by weather and vegetation factors . It was not until the 1980s that more care was started for World War I cemeteries. The cemetery in Tymowa has been renovated, is now in very good condition and is nurtured.
