I don't know if anyone wrote something about this. It's just that It seems like our soldiers graves are forgotten (at least one of them). Ok, maybe some (located near important cities) are visited . I read an article on the Internet (I'll try to find the site again) about this and I was quite shocked, especially when I read about the "graves" from Basarabia.
Unfortunately I know such a location here in Romania. I found it almost by accident. It's a shame that we do not pay enough respect to those who died for our country.
I don't intend to be a "super patriot" or something, but this should concern all of us.

I'm sorry, I didn't have much free time lately and it's just a short response.

Have you visited teh website of the National Office of the Heroes Cult (Oficiul National pentru Cultul Eroilor)? The adress is: http://www.once.ro/. It is a serious improvement to what it was several years ago when it had only a small webpage.

ANDI, on the site given by Victor, check this:
http://www.once.ro/ro/index.php?id=10057&lang=ro

So it seems that the things are moving in a good direction.

Edited: English version of this news:

Also a good map (for the future anyway - many pages are under construction):

Good site indeed! Too bad it is still under construction and I am very curious to find out if the places I was talking about are mentioned there. In fact I want to see if the status of these cemeteries has changed. Last time I checked, in october last year, I did'nt even got close to the monument due to the lots of horns and spike weeds and bush. Actually you can not see it. The locals told me about it.
And I am about to make a visit there soon.

It is in Dambovita county. The monument was raised in the '30es by the germans and according to the inscription on it about 60 germans and more than 300 roumanian soldiers (artillery regiment) lost their life on that field.
Not even Chiritescu in his wellknown book " Romania in Primul Razboi Mondial" mention there were a squirmish in that area.
Excuse me if I wont say the village name. My goal is only for restoration.
And I don't think that too many visitors it will do any good, if you know what I mean.
If you are really interested and want to do something in that matter (restoration), I can give you my e-mail adress.
Regards,
pvt. ANDI

It's your choice. Good luck with your plans.

Thank you, I hope you did not misunderstood me when I said that I won't write about this village. But I don't want to draw unwanted attention over this forgotten place of rest where there is only the marble and stone monument remaining. The last three wooden crosses (the names faded away a long time ago) were laying on the ground in no order whatsoever.
I hope you will understand that and as I said before, I can give you more details if you really want that.
I was hoping that people would take care more about they past heroes. Big or small battles, there were victims who deserve proper respect. Friends and foes.

It's a shame if ONCE does not have the mausoleums from Focsani and Soveja on their list.

Regards,
pvt. ANDI

One WWII cemetery that seems to be missing from the ONCE site is the one in Leţcani (16 km east of Iaşi). Above the entrance it has written "Cimitirul Eroilor Neamului, ... Leţcani 1944", where "..." stands for an empty space that seems to have been painted over.

Check the "Proiecte pentru anul 2005" page on that site. It seems like there is a reconstruction project for Letcani and some other war cemeteries.
" tara Lovistei" also is full of monuments and cemeteries of the soldiers and officers (roumanian, german and austro-hungarian) who fought in that area in ww1.
I am waiting ONCE to finish constructing it's site and county maps, in order to check for those locations.

Cheers,

Meanwhile we can build our own lists. Some information on this topic can also be found it the threads below.

That is a very good idea!
Our country is full of burial grounds for soldiers who fought mostly in ww1 .Roumanians but also germans and austro-hungarians.
I know "tara Lovistei" quite well and I can tell you there are a lot of cemeteries and small monuments scattered along Olt valley( Calinesti, Boita, Brezoi, Robesti, etc.) and along the alternate road between Sibiu and Arges county through Boisoara-Titesti village.
So, how do you think we should proceed?

The simplest way is to write here the name of the place and put a photo if possible. A more advanced way would be building up a systematic list with descriptions and details. It is up to the posters which way they choose.
