A Polish-Hungarian agreement signed in Poland's southern city of Krakow on Thursday provides for the renovation of three WWI cemeteries located in the Malopolskie province in southern Poland. The agreement was signed by Piotr Cwik, the Malopolska provincial governor, and the head of the Hungarian Institute and Museum of Wars, Colonel Vilmos Kovacs. Cwik declared that the point was to renovate World War I cemeteries, where "our heroes as well as Hungarian heroes have been laid to rest," but also other burial sites of WWI victims. Under the agreement, Poles and Hungarians will jointly renovate three WWI cemeteries located in the Malopolskie province. The Thursday agreement is the fifth document on cooperation signed with the Hungarian institute by the Malopolskie province. Under earlier agreements, the two sides renovated four war cemeteries.
