War Cemetery in Rzeplin at the road to Cianowice

Cmentarz, Rzeplin
przy drodze do Cianowic, 32-043 Rzeplin Tourist region: Jura Krakowsko- Częstochowska
The necropolis is located on the west side of the village. It is a mass grave, at present resembling a burial tumulus topped with a small concrete cross.
A chain spread between stone poles functions as a fence. The vicinity of Rzeplin was one of the key positions of the Austro-Hungarian defence. Battles against the elite Guard Divisions of the tsarist army, including many bayonet clashes, were fought there November 16–18, 1914. Every farmstead in the village, which had not been burnt down or bombed by the artillery, was the object of fighting.
