Chełmno - All Saints' Night
Poland

One of the most picturesque graveyards during the most photogenic Polish holiday on November 1st in the old cemetary in Chełmno.

The Prussian King Friedrich Wilhelm III. ordered on 29 March 1804 to establish a Catholic cemetery outside the city walls. Thereupon, the city gave to the Catholic community a strip of land along the city wall between Thorn Street (Toruńska ul) to the Powder Tower. The cemetery has been extended several times. The partially very steep terrain required a terrace type of facility, which constitutes its special charm.

The panorama shows one of the family crypts in the old cemetery. This special crypt is of a German family. This depicts a part of the traditional Polish and German cultures, which, along with the Jewish one, have been co-existing in this area until the WW2.
