Aachen, Germany
Church of the Holy Ghost
17 Aachen, Germany - shards

“On or about October 23rd I entered the first German city to fall to our forces, the imperial but now roofless city of Aachen, a good thousand years old. A very new Church of the Holy Ghost on the outskirts had been the scene of a firefight and a wrecked tram stood by the forlorn and empty church. Down by the Cathedral, I saw an aged woman lugging two suitcases as she crawled over stone pilings.

Where was she going with her pitiful burden?”
