Description of the cemetery
The facility is located on a steep slope at Bochniewicz St., near the church of Corpus Christi . His designer, Hans Mayr, skilfully adapted it to the surrounding monuments. The cemetery was incorporated into a magnificent oak growing in this area. Due to the steep slope, the cemetery was designed in the form of terraces above. 4 burial fields are separated by walls and connected by stairs. Entrance to the cemetery with long, concrete steps through a decorative gate. The fence is made of a stone wall covered with a concrete window sill. The main monument is a Latin stone cross embedded in the back wall of the fence . On the tombstones, crosses of various types are placed on a concrete plinth. [source: Wikipedia, 1462753]
the fallen
386 soldiers were buried here, including : * 204 soldiers of the Austro-Hungarian army; * 182 soldiers of the Russian army. The construction of this resting place was started by the Austrians after the victorious battle at Gorlice and the expulsion of Russian troops far to the east. The prisoners of war took part in organizing the building. They dealt with, among others exhumation and relocation of the bodies of fallen soldiers, who were buried in various makeshift burial places immediately after the battle, including next to a nearby collegiate church .

The fate of the cemetery
During the interwar period, the new building was still in good condition. After World War II, the rank of this place of eternal rest in the consciousness of society and the authorities of that time decreased, because new, more recent graves and dramatic stories of the new war came. The object was naturally destroyed by weather and vegetation factors . A huge oak tree fell, destroying some of the tombstones that were later used to repair the makeshift stairs. Bushes overgrown the cemetery, and shading stone elements caused their moistness and covering with moss. The property was completely renovated. In 2017, it was in very good condition.
