Hans-Georg Henke - 15 Year Old German Soldier crying

He was a member of the Luftwaffe anti-air squad who burst into tears as his world crumbled around him. His father died 1938 and his mother in 1944. He joined the Luftwaffe to support himself. When the war was coming to an end he walked 60 miles to try and reach American lines only to be captured by the Russians. Luckily, he and his 2 brothers all survived the war. He went on to live a full life and died in 1997.
