We were traveling with three small children – Emy-Margret was three, Hardy just two, and Heinrich seven months. Thankfully our fellow travelers were friendly and helpful. When we finally reached my parents’ home in Halle on the evening of August 24, we found out that Eberhard had been discharged from the army as physically unfit for active duty, and that he would be arriving that very day. What a homecoming it was, and what a reunion! Everything was in the grip of war. Trainloads of wounded soldiers were already being transported from the battle lines, and cattle were being shipped to the front to feed the men.
A Joyful Pilgrimage The Wnd Blows Everyone sensed that hidden in nature lay a mystery: God. Most had not experienced God or had lost sight of him – if not through disillusionment with the established churches, then through the terrible experiences of war. Out in nature, however, we felt something of a true quest for the unknown God and a sense of great reverence for him when we gathered and sang together. A quiet song, a peaceful song, A song so tender and fine, Like a cloudlet that over the blue sky sails, Like a cotton grass blown in the wind.
A Joyful Pilgrimage Seekng Toward the end of the war many people were virtually starving. To make matters worse, there was tremendous inequality. Those who had money and connections were able to get hold of almost anything, while others went for days without food. In one apartment building, for instance, some had all they wanted, while others, like the caretaker and his wife, had nothing and had to send their children hungry to school. Yet all were expected to fight and give their lives for “the cause” on an equal basis.
