Poznan Old Garrison Cemetery, Poland
Poznan Cemetery is a fascinating visit.
The dead of different and complex conflicts are buried here.
The cemeteries here not only include the dead of WW2 but also those killed in the 1956 Polish uprising.
These are a few graves of the many Poles who died whilst supporting Soviet troops attacking the Poznan Citadel towards the end of WW2.

A large number of graves of those executed following 'The Great Escape' are buried in this cemetery. S/L Bussell was one of the main leaders of the plot.
