Description of the cemetery
The designer of the cemetery was Gustaw Ludwig. The cemetery is made on a rectangular plan. The main decorative element is a stone monument with a stone mounted on it on a decorative arch with three stylized crosses and a picture. The monument is located at the southern end of the accommodation, which is divided into three parallel parts. In the middle part there are 5 tombstones, on the sides of the collective tombs on which low cast-iron crosses were mounted on concrete plinths. There are 2 types of crosses; one-armed Austrian and two-armed Russian . In later years, tombstones and plaques commemorating other soldiers and soldiers were also placed in the cemetery's headquarters. In the lower part of the monument, after the Second World War, a commemorative plaque with the names of Home Army soldiers and hostages murdered in 1942-44 was installed. In the middle part of the cemetery there is a tombstone of legionaries. Behind the main monument there are three graves of soldiers of the Peasant Battalions, victims of communist crimes. There was also a gravestone of militiamen and security service soldiers who died after the Second World War in the fight against the soldiers of the Polish patriotic underground. The cemetery was renovated and is in good condition . [source: Wikipedia, 2439849]
