Independent Photo by Susan W. Murray | Albert received this memorial montage from Germany when he was living in the U.S., likely for the 10th anniversary of the end of the war. “I knew every one of them,” Albert said. He is the last survivor. The translation reads: “Roll of Honor, World War, 1939-1945.” The top 17 photos are of the “Fallen and Missing,” including three Kroger brothers who perished in the war. The bottom 37 photos are the “Veterans.” The bottom inscription reads: “Our Fallen and Missing, dedicated from Relatives and Comrades-in-Arms.” “Dorf Bonrechtern” is the Bonrechtern Valley, where Albert’s town of Vechta is located. Albert’s brother Klemens is the first photo on the left of the second row of veterans. Albert is the first photo on the left in the bottom row.
