"Killed in Action"

(Drawing by Kathe Kollwitz, 1919)

Returned Mail: Killed in Action

The drawing above is from Kollwitz's Krieg-series. Click here to see Widows and Orphans, another anti-war drawing by this German artist.
Kathe Kollwitz lost her only son in the war (and later, in the Second World War, her only grandson).

The illustration right shows a enveloppe, that was returned to the sender, because the soldier the letter was addressed to, was 'killed in action'.
