Chapter 7 – 11: “Jedwabne’s Cemetery of World War I German Soldiers”

We wandered through the Christian cemetery and came upon a startling find. There, in a condition much more ragged than the Polish-Christian graves yet in much less a state of decay than in the Jewish cemetery, were the graves of German soldiers killed in Jedwabne during World War I. Rustic wooden crosses, bouquets of plastic flowers strewn about, and the remains of memorial candles marked this cemetery.
