Vom Wildschwein-Ritt bis zum Giftgasangriff

Bisher unveröffentlichte Fotos öffnen ein Fenster in die Zeit des Ersten Weltkrieges

Die Nachrichtenagentur Reuters hat Fotos aus dem Ersten Weltkrieg veröffentlicht, die zum Teil vergessen auf einem Dachboden in Frankreich verstaubt sind. Genauer sind es rund 600 Glasplatten mit Bildern eines Captains der französischen Kavallerie, die zwischen 1915 und 1917 an der Champagne-Front gemacht wurden. Zusammen mit weiteren Archivaufnahmen lassen diese Fotos erahnen, wie grausam es vor 100 Jahren in Europa zugegangen ist.
