South of the main street of Jamno, up the hill behind an apple plantation there is an old cemetery. Big trees and lilac lead the way. The cemetery is enclosed in a wall made from boulders. At the village side two cement posts mark the entrance. The bigger part of the cemetery is maintained and free of bushes. In another part with dense lilac bushes there is a stone monument formed as a pyramid and some remains of a monument decorated with patriotic symbols (torches). In the center of the cemetery ther is a single grave.
A farmer had sown me the way to the cemetery and he had also shown to me a place where a church had been located. The church explains the cemetery. But why had it disappeared?
The explanation can be found in the 'Słownik Geograficzny Królestwa Polskiego'. According to it, Jamno had been the place of a wooden Catholic church built in 1702. In 1854 the church burned down and was not renewed, since Jamno now belonged to the community of Słubice. The cemetery seems to have been used till after WW I.
