Last German World War I veteran has died

News that the last German World War I veteran has died has no closed a chapter on the Great War. The handful of veterans from World War I with the average age of 107-110 years old is rather small. I have met many individuals over the years with American and German connections to the First World War.

The veteran who has recently died is the late Dr. Erich Kästner (March 10, 1900 -January 1, 2008). This report comes from his family who announced it in Hannoversche Allgemeine newspaper.
