Description of the cemetery
The designer was a Pole Jan Szczepkowski. The cemetery is located on the slope descending to the road Ciężkowice - Bobowa and it leads the main entrance to the cemetery by stairs. It is closed with an iron, forged, double-sided gate. On the opposite side of the cemetery there is a second, one-winged gate leading to the municipal cemetery. The war cemetery was made on a rectangular plan. The main decorative element is a concrete cross placed on a concrete pedestal. The tombstones were placed in rows, the cemetery was planted with trees. All gravestones have identical crosses made of steel flat bars and are mounted on concrete plinths with names of the fallen soldiers. The fence of the cemetery is made of slate stones made of stone, and there are hurdles made of steel flat bars between them . In the picture in the work of Broch and Hauptmann the cross on the plinth was wooden, later it was visibly changed into a concrete . The cemetery is preserved in good condition, has undergone a major renovation, under which new nameplates were made, the area was cleaned, the crosses were repainted etc. In 2015, 100-year-old limes are removed, which destroy the cemetery and pose a threat to people .
