Over 2,000 soldiers of the Polish Army who died in the Battle of Bzura, in the defense of Warsaw and the Modlin Fortress are buried there. After the verification process, we managed to add and permanently commemorate the names of over 370 soldiers, including 33 men of Jewish nationality, to the previously known list of 515 names of the fallen soldiers. Their personal data has also been supplemented with the soldiers’ dates of birth and death as well as the military formations thay served in. Over a thousand names still remain unknown.
The ceremony was attended by, among others, Deputy Marshal of the Polish Sejm Małgorzata Gosiewska, Mazovian Voivode Zdzisław Sipiera, Garrison Commander Warsaw Gen. Robert Głąb, Field Bishop of the Polish Army, Fr. Józef Guzdek and the Chief Rabbi of Poland Michael Schudrich.
