This cemetery holds more than 1,000 graves of Polish soldiers and others who fought during WWII in Monte Cassino. They have Crosses and Star's of David. Maintained very well. Worth while place to visit as it is within the Abbey's grounds.

A portion of the sacrifice to take this line. It was good to see the Catholic, Orthodox, and Jewish soldiers in their own sections.

Very interesting history lesson ... Remember that apart from the cemetery there are many trails around the area where the battle took place.

We visited this cemetery based on a recommendation of a fellow American traveler we encountered along our way. I have Polish ancestors, so it took on a special meaning for me. Lots of history here.

A truly heart warming tribute to the Polish sacrifice in the battle for Montecassino. The March up the Italian peninsula would not have been possible without their tremendous loss of life.
