Tombstone Tuesday – Cemetery of Non-Existent Cemeteries

Another slightly unusual “Tombstone Tuesday”. Today I’m deviating somewhat from the “Latvian” part of this blog, because what I came across here while visiting Gdansk, Poland, really spoke to me.

This is the memorial stone at the “Cemetery of Non-Existent Cemeteries” – a memorial built to commemorate all of the destroyed cemeteries in Gdansk, and the people who may have died without having their burial places marked at all. Click on the photo to enlarge it.

Now, I don’t speak Polish, and Google Translate can be a bit dodgy, so maybe one of my Polish readers can translate what it says on the four sides of it? (only one side is visible in the above photograph) I also don’t know which side has the beginning of the phrase.

  • “…TYM CO IMION NIE MAJA”
  • “NA GROBIE”
  • “A TYLKO BÓG WIE, JAK KTO”
  • “SIĘ ZOWIE…”

Thank you for your translations!
