The fate of the cemetery
The photograph of this cemetery was on postcards given to soldiers of the Army during the propaganda campaign, for example Jarosław Haszek in the novel "Przygody dobre Wojaka Szwejka". One of these postcards is located, among others in the collection of the Gorlice Museum. It can be seen that the cemetery looked a bit different then at present - it was planted with trees that are no longer present. Two existing conifers are much younger, they were planted later. In 2015, this cemetery is not looking good; plaster plasters fall off, crosses rust, tombstones bend down. [source: Wikipedia, 2776915]
