Military Cemetery

  ul. Dąbrowskiego 2, Gdańsk ,   No District          (+48) 609 69 07 39     more than a year ago
WWII saw heavy casualties on all sides, none heavier than in the last year of the war when the city faced the wrath of Allied bombing and the advancing Red Army. Such was the destruction and the size of the area covered by the conflict, that bodies of soldiers and civilians continue to be found right up until today. Those identified as German combatants are repatriated or re-buried in the Military Cemetery which can be found at the rear of the civilian cemetery on ul. 3-Maja. While the Red Army cemetery is clearly marked and separated by a fence the Germany Military Cemetery can be reached by walking through and up the civilian graveyard to where you will find a series of monuments and the odd German flag. Not just containing the remains of casualties of WWII, you’ll also see stones marking the German dead of WWI and the Franco-German war of 1870. There is a stone letter box of sorts for people to leave prayers or mass cards.
