Mein Bild
In Mori (Stockelsdorf) bei Lübeck aufgewachsen, habe ich bereits von 1916 bis 1918 am Ersten Weltkrieg im Füsilierregiment "Königin" Nr. 86 teilgenommen. Im August 1939 wurde ich als Veteran in die Wehrmacht eingezogen. In diesem Blog veröffentliche ich mein Kriegstagebuch.

11. November 1939

  1. Interesting that Dieter makes no comment on the date.

    In France and the UK, 11 November was - and to this day remains - a big day, known in English as Armistice Day. It marks the anniversary of the end of the First World war, and is generally commemorated without any triumphalism but rather in sadness at the loss of life in that war (and since 1945 also in subsequent wars).

  2. I could imagine that this date is not something that conservative people would celebrate back in those times. It would rather be seen as a symbol for defeat and loss.
    Still in Germany there is no tradition of celebrating neither Nov 11th, nor Mai 8th.

    To me, as someone of the "younger" generation, this is somewhat strange. We were raised with a strong focus on the horros that every war brings and the freedom that was regained by losing the war. Nevertheless, War End is no public holiday. This is illogic to me.
