[About this Cemetery]
In the village of Lapscheure, Belgium, quite close to the Dutch-Belgian
border, stood a farmhouse, where a Dutchman was farming.
Shortly before the liberation of that region three Poles and an Austrian,
all FOUR of them in German service, asked permission to hide themselves
under his wood-stack to be able to desert in doing so.
By accident they were discovered by other German soldiers there.
Later they were executed by a firing-squad, after having dug their
own graves in a dike.
The 3 Poles have been exhumed later and transferred to Lommel, where
they lie buried now as "NIEZNANY ŻOŁNIERZ" to translate as
