The fate of the cemetery
After the Second World War, cemeteries from the First World War were not cared for and they were subject to natural destruction, and acts of vandalism were also occurring. . Cemetery No. 130 in GrybĂłw has been renovated. However, it differs from the original appearance. The outline of the grave has become illegible, and on the inside of one of the pillars of the entrance gate there is a small commemorative plaque, embedded by the family of a soldier who died in the battle of the Piawa river in Italy. After renovation, the cemetery is in very good condition. New tin plates were made, but their assembly is not very reliable and a few of them have dropped out . The number of soldiers given on the cross-mounted plate differs from the number given in other sources. [source: Wikipedia, 2440030]
