Belgium 1914
Belgium 1914

Shaken, Chiara looked at the Liberty Bonds she was about to buy. On it was a creature with a Pickelhaube abgebildet, so obviously a German. It was completely dehumanized, and even a gorilla did not look like it. More like the monsters from the horror films. “Halt the Hun!” she read, and on another “Remember Belgium”. But this “Hun” had nothing in common with her beloved grandfather, Lorenz Bergmann, who had come from Germany to the United States so many years ago. She had German roots and would love to see Germany, that seemed impossible now.

The USA were at war.
