Sausages and cigars for Christmas Max Kranz and the men from Hatzenport in World War One
Europeana 1914-1918

In 1914 the little village of Hatzenport, a winegrowing community on the borders of the Mosel river in the West of Germany, had about 850 inhabitants. When war broke out most of the men voluntarily joined the army. This exhibition pays tribute to Max Kranz and other men from Hatzenport.
