At the entrance there is a little exposition about the role of the Poles. Grave of Gen. Anders and more than 1000 very young men that died for liberty.

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.
