The Polish cemetery at Monte Cassino contains graves of more than one thousand Poles who died while storming the abbey in May 1944, during the Battle of Monte Cassino.

The cemetery also contains the grave of General Anders, commander of the Polish forces, who survived the war, dying in London in 1970. Part of the Polish memorial at Monte Cassino bears the following inscription, which translated from Polish reads:

We Polish soldiers

For our freedom and yours

Have given our souls to God

Our bodies to the soil of Italy and our hearts to Poland
