The Central Cemetery

This is one of the remembrance places of the December 1970 revolt. It comprises 13 graves of those who were killed on 17-19 December 1970 and buried in a disgraceful way – at night, in a hurry and many without the presence of their closest relatives. The area around an old German iron cross, standing at the second gate near the victims' graves, was the venue of several demonstrations held during and after the martial-law period. The December '70 Cross, also referred to as the Polish Martyrdom Cross, was erected in 1999. These two structures remind us of the events which were sought to be erased from memory by the censorship and hostile propaganda.
