Old Germanic cemetery [Hier ruhet in Gott]

Some weeks ago I was in village named Smilgiai. Here was forest. In the forest are two cemeteries: one for lithuanians, another for germans. The second one is very old. In it’s gates incused ’1939′. Earlier here buried germans. Both cemeteries are next to each other, but view of it are very different. Lithuanian cemetery is used nowadays and germanic cemetery is long time not used for people’s burial. Therefore german cemetery is unkept, small and overgrown with trees, scrubs, grass… Lots of graves are without monuments, so nobody know who is buried. But some of the graves had monuments and I took photographs of it. Some graves was little bit excavated.
Here is photo serie of old germanic cemetery, where somebody’s ancesters are buried here in small Lithuania’s forest:
