Near by the small bridge, which crosses the river Bzura near Witkowice, there is a memorial for the Polish soldiers killed in action during the defense of this bridge at the beginning of WW II (16.-19. September 1939).
It seems that the memorial has been placed on an older ramp of a bridge.
Like recognizable on many other Polish war memorials, the German sounding names of some of the soldiers catch the attention (Giber, Hedinger, Oppitz, Richter, Szubert). An effective warning about the absurdity of war based on nationality and ethnicity of people.
Photos and other contributions for the documentation of this cemetery were provided by: Jutta Dennerlein.
