Description of the cemetery
It is a small cemetery on a polygon plan (area 188m 2 ). It is surrounded by a very solid wall of stone. The wall is covered with a concrete roof. Entrance through a gate closed with a cast iron gate. In the middle of the cemetery one old oak. Because the cemetery is located on uneven terrain, it was wyplantowany in the form of terraces of different heights. Gravel paths and concrete stairs are made. The main decorative element is a granite inscription wall located in the wall from the south side and topped with a cross, and in it in a semicircular niche, a granite inscription plate. On the board, an inscription in German: Death sacked us to the ground, now gather the harvest. In addition to her are two cast-iron Latin crosses and one lotarian on concrete plinths. The soldiers' tombs are placed in one row by the wall on the long side of the cemetery. On the graves there are concrete steles crowned with cast iron crosses and plates with the names of soldiers. In the eastern corner of the cemetery, a plaque commemorating the inhabitants of Laskowa who died in 1939-45 was mounted. In the years 1992-1997 the cemetery was renovated. In 1993, he was included in the list of immovable monuments of the Małopolskie Voivodeship. [source: Wikipedia, 2294617]
