There are graves of Piłsudski Legions’ soldiers, those who fell in battle during the Polish-Bolshevik war of 1920, as well as soldiers who fell during the First and the Second World Wars. Bodies of German, Soviet and Ukrainian soldiers (of the Vlasov army) who died in fight in January 1945 are also buried here in the nameless grave in the southern part of the cemetery.
