Dec 13. With a sad heart - five Christmases apart

Five Christmases in a row did Georg Holub's sister send a Christmas card to her brother at the front. On the 13th of December 1917 she writes: "Dearest Georg, with a sad heart I write a few lines again. Still no post from you. ... I yearn for a few lines from you".

The five Christmas cards and other documents relating to Georg Holub were shared by Karl Tröstl under a CC-BY-SA licence. From the collection we can not only gather that Georg Holub survived the war but we can also learn more about him and his war service. To see all the documents relating to Georg, go to the Europeana 1914-1918 site.
