WWI Germany: Photos of and Letters from Forgotten German Soldiers´ Suffering during Bankers´ WWI

World War I began in 1914, and in 1915, the United States, who were not yet involved, lent France and Great Britain $500 million through American banks. In 1916, a single French loan totaled $750 million. In all, the total amount of the loans to these allied countries amounted to $3 billion, plus another $6 billion for exports, none of which were repaid. This was just one of the reasons for America’s entry into the war. Had Germany won, those bonds held by American bankers would have been worthless. J. P. Morgan (who served as England’s financial agent in the U.S.), Rockefeller (who made more than $200,000,000 on the war), Warburg, and Schiff, (all Rothschild agents) were instrumental in pushing America into the war, so they could protect their loans to Europe.

I have previously written about the Bankster paymasters and architects of WWI. Those are the people responsible for the inhuman suffering of the young soldiers at the front . They and their media who are behind the warmongering for the third world war .

Some kind of war is in the air again:
The Daily Mail 31 July 2014:  David Cameron compared Russia’s hostility towards Ukraine with the build-up to the two world wars last night, as he warned economic sanctions could get tougher. ‘We are not about to launch a European war.”The Prime Minister likened the situation to Belgium and Poland ‘being trampled on’ before wars broke out in Europe last century. The G7 denounced Russia last night.

On 1 Aug. I did not hear a word about WWI on German or Danish TV. Why did they not use that occasion  to warn mankind of the stupidity and and evil of yet another war in Europe?  Instead the media is whipping up a climate of hostility against Russia on the basis of Western subversion:  The Coup in Kiew instigated and coordinated by Soros´American Ukrainian Committee  as well as the EU and the US .  Furthermore, there have been 2 false flag operations: 1. The Maidan Massacre in Kiew by the revolutionary coupsters supported by the EU and USA  and 2. the shootdown of the MH17.

Letters from German WWI soldiers: 

WWI - nach dem sturmCorporal Karl Fritz from the trenches at Verdun to his parents and sisters:

For three days, we were in the shell holes,
seeing death in the eyes,  every moment expecting it. Besides, not a drop of water and the horrible stench of corpses. One shell burying the dead, the other pulls him out again. If you want to dig in, you get straight to the dead. I had a group, but every man has prayed for himself. The worst part is relief, the in and out. The constant barrage. douaumont ossuaryIn addition, we went through Fort Douaumont/Verdun , and such I’ve never seen before.

All is full full of wounded here and heavy smell of dead …..
wwI-koestler-no-ma´s-landfurthermore, it is also constantly under fire.
We had about 40 people dead and wounded … This
was little for a company, so I have
heard. They all looked pale and consumed.
I will not tell you more misery. It may be enough.
Sincere greetings and kisses and God speed by your thankful son and brother, Karl.”

On 28 November 1915,  cadet Karl Brunner from Halberstadt was commanded to the Western Front. On July 23, 1916, the
17-year-old high school student writes to his sister Mathilde:

“On the morning of the 22nd, we received a light artillery fire on the trench. From time to time a 15er, but all were duds. Afternoon, three clock,  the English started to literally cover us up with 15er grenades.

For protection, we only had small holes in the wall; but what kind of protection that was was soon proven. The first went on my hole, but I was not in it, thank God. They filled the trench up half and three people who had sought protection in the small holes, too, including my boys. Immediately I picked two courageous guys, and so we set right to the work of rescue. It was horrible. Below us lay the three and whimpered heartrendingly, above shot by shot of heavy artillery WWI - Koestler  dead-bodies-in-trenchexploded next to us with deafening bangs.

We shoveled so that the sweat trickled. Already, I came across my lad with the spade, when a grenade struck two feet behind us and  almost buried us. All work had been in vain. It took 15 minutes of most strenuous work, but again everything was filled up.

Then I gave it up. It was horrible minutes, hours. You hear these things always howling towards you and cannot escape them. That unnerves enormously. In the evening, I began digging  my hole out, in which raincoat, gas mask, bread bags lay.

A little break to write. A shrapnel gave me  a chunk of dirt in the face and on the letter. “Fantastic thing”!
While we were working all of a sudden we were commanded: “All aboard!” At the same moment the enemy´s  heavy artillery fire was directed  more on the batteries behind us. Instead, we were showered with shrapnels. But all breathed a sigh of relief that we got no “heavy ones” any more.

So we were about 15 minutes in the shrapnel hail, but inwardly completely reassured. Of these gizmos we have no fear. Finally, to the right and left the red flares went up, so both sides attack. The artillery fire stopped now, we were standing with the gun in the right hand and in the left the hand the grenade, ready to receive. But they did not attack us.

Anton Holzmann from Dächingen
August 13, 1916, in bivouac in Manukurt of the Somme
“My dears! Will  write you a short letter once again. Are still at
rest just behind the front in the area of the Somme at Peronne, Topiers, Albert, where the main attacks of the French and English were. We arrived here on July 28 from Ypres and came immediately to our position. We had then  experienced days that defy description. There are in fact no more trenches but only shell-hole by shell-hole. It is just hailing  grenades, and the password is life or death. This misery is like nowhere else, no hard wounded can be recovered, they must die of thirst  in sweltering heat.

WWI -Koestler German soldiers

The dead cannot be buried, they pile up to mountains,  stand erect and are five, six on top of each other. Then  heavy shells come and cover everything and tear it up again. Regiment 124 lost  1235 men in 10 days. The 4th Company alone 107 men.

Kind regards from Anton.

On the field of the Somme,  December 11, 1916
“My dears!
Just got a parcel from you again with my best thanks.
Are still here on the Somme, having mostly rainy weather. Now it is getting better and better here. Our small trenches that we still had at the front are all completely sunken,  now we  just have to lie around  in the mud and water holes. Then the long nights, furthermore in winter.

Most lose their boots and can then run far for hours without boots, and if they lag behind, where the masters are, they are scolded because they have no boots. This is the thanks for the super-humanity, that we must yield here. To me, it has also happened,  standing all day long in  mud and water up to above the knees without boots, because the boots cannot be found any longer and you can only go back  at night and not always.
Really,  basically everything here is perishing, humans and the whole equipment, too. But as for the humans, it´s totally indifferent, since no one cares. And if someone  reports sick “then it means that another must be shot while you shirk  and you get no vacation for one year or more and are put down”. It’s unbelievable.WWI-trench

No one here has any choice but to run along until he falls. I really have very bad feet,  injured, swollen, because there is no more  leather, everything beats through and the boots are too short since the water and the mud boils up inside. Also, like almost everybody,  I’m so hoarse in my throat, that I cannot speak one word aloud. But you have to  endure, that´s our lot.

As far as I know, we should get away from here by Christmas. It is also high time, otherwise the whole regiment will be destroyed. Arrived from position on December 9th, will  now stay till 12th at Conelie for three days, then again six days in position. When we arrived on the 9th from position we were so smeared with dirt and water as I’ve never seen a man. There is limestone and chalk there, you see, so it `s just like in a lime pit. Hopefully, there will be better times soon. After all, I did send you a letter.

Kind regards from Anton .
