The Zasanie Cemetery was created by initiative of military authority from Przemyśl in 1915 and up to 1939 it maintained a military cemetery form. After 1939 it was reformed into a communal cemetery.
A metal cross with an inscription: “Pro Patria Mortuis” was placed in the necropoly. It is accompanied by two Russian cannons that were captured during the fights for Przemyśl Fortress. A special place in the cemetery was chosen for the austro-hungarian soldiers who fell in battles for Przemyśl, and for the polish soldiers from WW I.
