The human loss of the multinational Austro-Hungarian Monarchy in World War I is estimated for millions. But only one third of the dead, wounded and the prisoners of war can be directly linked to the fronts. Many died behind the frontlines or suffered and died in hospitals established in the hinterland. As a result of the Russian invasion, several counties of Eastern Hungary became operational areas between 1914 and 1915, and immediately after the fights ended, the identification of the dead and the burials began. Meanwhile the wounded continued to arrive from Galicia and Bukovina, who were in the first round placed in the towns of Mukachevo and Uzhhorod. Several thousand soldiers found their final resting place on the passes of the Carpathian Mountains and in military cemeteries created by the city hospitals. This study focuses on the establishment and the number of these cemeteries, as well as on the analysis of measures taken in connection with them.
