Effect of war on Grimminger
The outbreak of the current war was another blow for me, because as a participant in the world war of 1914/18, I feel sorry for everything that is affected by war. The starting point for my thoughts: It had to have been possible to avoid this war.
Nevertheless, I cannot directly oppose the leader of our people. I must come to terms with it by believing that it is fate.
