History
The cemetery was built in the place of fighting. There were Russian trenches on Pustki. On May 2, 1915, the allied Austro-Hungarian and German armies began the operation of breaking the Russian front called the battle of Gorlice. After the four-hour artillery fire of all departments, the extended Russian trenches were destroyed by the artillery. Hidden in the forest, however, survived artillery fire and allowed the Russian army to resist. The Austro-Hungarian and German armies conquered the hill after the bayonet attack, but suffered large losses in people. 15 soldiers of the Russian army are buried in the cemetery in 15 collective graves and 3 individual burials .

Description of the cemetery
It is located on the western slope of the PustkĂłw, below the cemetery no. 123. It was designed by the artistic director of the district IV Jan Szczepkowski. It is built on a rectangular plan and surrounded by stone poles connected by pairs of pipes from the front, and on the other sides by a stone wall. A wooden gate is entered to the cemetery. In front of the entrance is a monumental wall with a plate indicating the number of soldiers buried here. A Lotarian cross stands above her. The tombstones are in the form of a stone, stepped plinth. On each of the three steps there is a cast-iron Lorraine cross. On the highest step of the plinth there is an enamel tombstone. In the middle of the cemetery stands a single higher Lorraine cross. In this grave a Russian officer is buried. The cemetery has undergone a renovation and is now in good condition, although the grave fields have become blurred. Only soldiers of the Russian army are buried in the cemetery. This is not the only burial place for soldiers of this army who died in the battle for Pustki. There are 212 tsarist soldiers in the nearby cemetery No. 123. [source: Wikipedia, 2342717]
