Liberty Magazine - August 24, 1946
Liberty Magazine cover with a mom and baby enjoying the beach.
Cover story: “According to German master planners, they have won the war in Europe. Ridiculous?”
Waverly Root, “A noted historian lays the disconcerting facts on the line.”
“From a long-range viewpoint, the victor of a war is the nation which emerges from it with the most food, the most natural resources, the strongest industry, the largest population, and, in short, the best situation as compared with that of her neighbors. In all these respects, Germany today is better off than the countries who surround her. In other words, Germany won the War.”
“Did Germany win the war?”

Headstone Fence - Mikulov, Czech Republic
Old headstones made into a fence for the walk along a graveyard in Moravia.
We are not sure where these headstones came from. Many of the names carved into this line of stones are written in Hebrew.
Presumably, these markers were re-purposed during World War II.
Many graveyards in central European towns are several layers thick with bodies of the dead. For example at the Jewish Cemetery in the ancient Prague ghetto people were buried up to thirteen layers deep. There was very little room given to them so they did what they had to do.
Should you find yourself in Moravia, we would like someone to make rubbings of the stones.
We can then translate them into English to furthur our hopes of tracing the families of the dead.
