    I have been researching Franciscan Brothers and Priests for my Honour Roll ... thankfully they all came home ... but I came across this German Brother who didn't go home ..... and felt I had to acknowledge him ..... RIP Br. Wigbert (Theophil) Hattig

    ( The famous German artist Kathe Kollwitz created the widely known statues Trauerndes Elternpaar (Mourning parents) in memory of her son Peter who was killed in action and buried at Vladslo in 1914. 25,644 German soldiers, killed in WWI, are buried here )
