Soldiers of the Russian and Austrian-Hungarian army were buried here, who died in fighting in the surrounding areas in December 1914 during the Limanowa-Pawanska operation, and in field hospitals. The Russians occupied Rajbrot and the surrounding areas as early as November 11, 1914. The contemporary commentators write: "The Muslims appear, who, like a swarm, occupy almost all houses." They were preparing to gain the fortifications of Krakow. The battle ended with the victory of Austrian troops who stopped the Russian offensive towards Krakow and Silesia.
