In 1970 a large dam was built in the Vistula at Włocławek. As planned, the resulting reservoir flooded a number of low-lying villages on the left bank of the Vistula. The cemetery at Modzerowo then disappeared under the surface of the Vistula. As early as 1966, when the building of the dam was decided, the dead of the Protestant cemetery at Modzerowo were reburied. Their new resting place is in the cemetery at Smolnik. However, only the dead from the grave sites which were still visible in 1966 were reburied. The locals say that for some years after the creation of the reservoir human bones have frequently been washed up on shore.
