In the foreground of the cemetery are civilian none-military related graves,

and about 20 meters to the right of this small cemetery is a second small one,

the two separated by a "V" shaped defile, with footpath leading to a road

at the rear of the graveyard.

In this graveyard I found one Communist period Military related Grave.

Close-up.

I think the cap star would indicate the picture was taken during the

Romanian Popular Republic (R.P.R) period of 1947 to 1965. :unsure:

Hallo Gentlemen :cheers:

As a means to keeping this a balanced thread, I will post some pictures here taken (January 12th 2008)

in the Military Section of the "HERO'S CEMETERY" located in the Romanian Town of Cluj-Napoca of the SOVIET SECTION.

The Russian section is located on a slight rise to the left of the entrance gates, preceding this are sections with Romanian, German and Hungarian graves of WW2 as well as the graves of people killed in the 1989 Revolution.

Left side panel with names of the Fallen,

Too much frozen snow to see the lower names clearly,

but I intend to go back to document more headstones

so will re-take the picture for better detail.

This monument with the tank seems to commemorate members of the Soviet Tank Corps

killed in th fighting in the area of Cluj-Napoca.

These other markers I suspect were for the "poor bloody infantry"

Central panel with dedication in:

Russian - Romanian - Hungarian.

It commemorates the sacrifice of the Soviet soldiers to free

the people of Romania from the evil fascists and wishes them Eternal Glory!

I will be going back to Cluj-Napoca take individual pictures

of each of the headstones / markers sometime in the near future,

while there this time I started to catalogue

the Romanian - Hungarian - and German Headstones.

I also took pictures of the monument to the "Heroes of the 1989 Revolution" Monument

and the 15 victims gravestones:

+ "May they Rest In Peace." +

Opps before I forget must thank my brother Anthony for his help while on the trip to Cluj-Napoca

Being a Fanatic Tank Modeller :o I had a hard job persuading him

that it was better to leave the tank on the monument :lol: and not bring back to Ireland for

a new paint job :P
