History of the cemetery
The cemetery was almost completely destroyed and was reconstructed. The main decorative element of the cemetery was a simple, high cross made of wooden beams, set on a stone mound . The original cemetery was fenced with a wooden rail fence. The graves of the soldiers had earth tombstones with wooden crosses . [source: Wikipedia, 2778352]
The current appearance of the cemetery
The present cemetery is completely different from the original one. It is a rectangular, leveled lawn surrounded by panels with a metal net on a concrete foundation. Entrance through a metal gate. The only elements in the cemetery are the newly made concrete monument and the officer's grave in front of him. The monument has the shape of a sharp cut pyramid placed on a concrete foundation. Topped with a Latin concrete cross. On the front of the pyramid there is a plaque with the inscription in Polish: CEMETERY OF AUSTRIACKI ZI WOJNY ŚWIATOWEJ NR 182/44 GROBY ZIEMNE. Under the blackboard, a card with a printout of the names of the identified soldiers was placed in a wooden frame. The officers' tombs are an earth gravestone with a concrete frame, crowned with a small concrete Latin cross. All graves of the soldiers have been leveled and no tombstone is left on them .
