The initial stage of the project is conducted by Henryk Skololowski and his crew, under direct and daily supervision of Marek Kaminski.

Trees that were in danger of falling on the graves were cut.  The entire grounds were manually tilled and grade and grass was sown.

Presently, grass prevents the regrowth of weeds. From now on only occasional spraying with herbicides and regular grass cutting will be required to maintain the cemetery in  respectable shape.
