The Austro-Hungarian military cemetery Nemci lies south of the village of Nemci, in the area called Podsleme. Here are buried the Austro-Hungarian soldiers who died in the military hospital in the direct vicinity.
According to the data of Italian authorities that organized exhumation of soldiers from military cemeteries in the 1930s, 794 soldiers are supposed to be buried here. It is believed that on that occasion, mortal remains of Austro-Hungarian soldiers from the cemeteries of Črtešče near Trnovo and Lurava njiva near Nemci were also transferred and reburied here. During the revitalization activities of 1983 the terrain was levelled and the graves are no longer visible. Only four headstones along the wall evoke the memory of the buried soldiers nowadays.
