Old Cemetery Nov 01, 2009
Cemetery - Catholic, Evangelical and Orthodox. It as founded in the year 1858. The elaborate tombs embraced by a splendor of trees and shrubs reflect the lives that were lived in "the Promised Land".
Many prominent factory owners were laid to rest in the Evangelical: the Biedermans, Grohmans, Geyers, Kindermanns, Scheiblers, as well as scientists, actors, artists, national heroes and priests. The largest tomb, unrivalled in Poland, adorns the Scheiblers' burial place. It resembles a tiny Neo - Gothic church.
The biggest is the Catholic part. You can find here Heinzl family mausoleum. Here are buried fighters from The January's Insurrection, 1905 year's revolution, 1920 year's war and World War II.
In the Orthodox part laid mostly tsar's officials and soldiers.
Spare tombs on this cemetery runned out in 1888.
