The fate of the cemetery
The Austrians built the cemetery in 1916. In 1917, a lunar by Paul Wojtowicz was buried in the cemetery, but the place of burial is unknown. On the 50th anniversary of the construction, in 1966, it was renovated. New fence pipes were installed, a new gate was opened and concrete canopies were rebuilt on the fence posts. Under the central cross a new inscription talon was installed in Polish (the original one was damaged and in German) and the missing cast-iron crosses were complemented. In 2018, the cemetery is renovated and is in very good condition, however, the tombstones system differs from the original one. Drogomir, based on the surviving plan of the cemetery, states that a serial Russian soldier, Avras Trochin, was buried in grave no. 10 (the first to the right of the gate), while the two-armed Russian cross is on another tombstone (in the corner of the cemetery). According to the plans, it was to be the tombstone of Josef Walkner from the 2nd Imperial Rifle Regiment. In addition, there were 11 tombstones, currently only 9. Part of the cast iron crosses, instead of 1914, has the date 1915. The replacement of the tombstones and crosses probably occurred during the renovation in 1966. At that time, probably not destroyed two graves. The boxwood and barberry planted on tombstones are contemporary. [source: Wikipedia, 2058544]
