History
Both soldiers of the Austrian-Hungarian army and soldiers of the Russian army were buried here in one place, who died in the surrounding fields at the beginning of December 1914 during the Limanowa-Pawanska operation. On December 7, the Russians occupied the hills of the Pogórze Wiśnickie to the west of Stradomka. Attacking from the south and from the side of Łapanowo and the Stradomka valley, the Austrian army captured them for several days. After a few days of extremely fierce battles, the Austrians drove Russian troops out of these areas. On December 13, the Russians began a retreat further east . The cemetery was buried: * 16 soldiers of the Russian army, * 16 soldiers of the Austro-Hungarian army. A total of 32 soldiers, 13 soldiers were identified . [source: Wikipedia, 3051456]
Description of the cemetery
The cemetery is made on a rectangular plan and has a concrete-iron fence consisting of a concrete bench, concrete pillars and iron pipes. The entrance gate is formed by two concrete pillars with a chain suspended between them. The main decorative element is a concrete pedestal located in front of the entrance gate in the form of a slab topped with a concrete cross. A large cast-iron Austrian cross (one-armed) cross and two smaller ones were mounted on it; one of the Austrian type, the other of Russian (two-armed). Small concrete pedestals with iron crosses made of thick flat bars were placed on the tombstones. These are single-armed and two-armed crosses. Two trees were planted on the cemetery .

The fate of the cemetery
During the interwar period, the cemetery was appreciated and was cultivated by the local community. After World War II, the importance of the cemetery in the awareness of society and the authorities at that time decreased. The cemetery was naturally destroyed. It was only in the 1980s that awareness of the need to protect began to grow. Currently, the cemetery is nurtured and in 2010 it was renovated. [source: Wikipedia, 3051456]
