Evangelical cemetery in Padligar.

  • I decided to have an inventory of the remaining gravestones from the former Protestant cemetery in Padligar( formerly kreis Züllichau- Schwiebus). It is very good that the thought of this, to save them from oblivion in two ways.
    The first of these was the establishment of lapidary. The second way was to group of survivors in a number of tombstones.

    I do not have such knowledge, those who grouped the graves in such a way. My guess is that either Podlegórz village council or local authorities. Who would not do it, praise him for it!
