The fate of the cemetery
In the interwar period, the cemetery was still in good condition as new. After World War II, the importance of the cemetery in the awareness of the society and the then authorities decreased, because new, more recent cemeteries and dramatic stories of the new war came. The cemetery was naturally destroyed by weather and vegetation factors, sometimes also by vandals . He was sorted several times, including burial fields are covered with concrete edges. However, the cemetery was devastated by vandals. After the original cross no trace was left, all the cast-iron crosses were lost and stolen (probably for scrap). Only a wrought iron gate survived . A general renovation of the cemetery has been carried out and in 2017 it is in very good condition . [source: Wikipedia, 1508173]
