It is located in the northern part of the village of Chojnik, near the hamlet StadniczĂłwka belonging to the village of Lichwin. It is located in the forest and is difficult to find because it is located far from the roads and no marked tourist trail leads to it. You can get to its vicinity by a narrow asphalt road that exits from Chojnik opposite the PKP stop . [source: Wikipedia, 2777631]
History of the cemetery
It was probably designed by Heinrich Scholz. In 2005, it was the most devastated of all 400 Western Galicia cemeteries of World War I. It was completely overgrown with shrubs, self-saplings of trees and thorny brambles, through which it was difficult to break through. No trace was left of the fence or entrance gate. The central monument, three wooden crosses, was completely destroyed. However, original crosses with concrete pedestals have been preserved. Most of them were overturned, covered with a layer of earth, caries and mosses, and corroded, but some of them still have legible plates with the names of the fallen . Renewals of the cemetery were made by members of the Association of Active Protection of Cemeteries from the First World War in Galicia. They obtained permission from the local authorities to renovate and in October 2005 they started work. They cleared the area from the tree stands, leveled it, and based on the archival documentation they marked the boundaries of the cemetery and placed the preserved crosses in accordance with the preserved plan of the cemetery. After cleaning the crosses with wire brushes, it turned out that they were in quite good condition. On November 1, 2005, for the first time after a long period of oblivion in the cemetery, the school youth lit the candle . [source: Wikipedia, 2777631]
