Establishment and building of war cemeteries in the territory of the North-East Slovakia during the Great War
Languages of publication
The field hospitals and front war cemeteries in the territory of the North-East Slovakia, originating as a result of the Great War battles, are a historical phenomenon that has no equivalent in our territory. They are unique mainly in the method of their foundation as well as in high concentration in a relatively small territory. Unlike it was incorrectly presented so far in the literature, they did not originate randomly but were the result of a precisely thought-out concept, prepared by the IX. War Graves Department (Kriegsgräber-abteilung), operating at the Austro-Hungarian Ministry of War (Kriegsministerium) seated in Vienna. The study submitted is aimed at zooming in on the basic rules of this process (focusing on the territory of North-Eastern Slovakia) based on the analysis of archival sources, period and contemporary literature and field survey.
