WW 1 – My Grandfather

From Gabriele Weissemann

This is a photo of my grand-father reading the “Tagespost” – Der Vormarsch gegen Rußland” (Daily Post – Offensive against Russia).

He too, did his military service in Austria, somewhere near the Brenner Pass, and he was able to bring his wife and two children to stay for a period, close to him, in a peasant’s home.
