[Above: Death card/notice for Reichsbahn employee Josefine Ringler, who was killed July 13, 1943. The card reads:

'Lebt wohl, ihr teuren Alle
Die ich auf Erden liess
Ich ging zu meinem Manne
In's Gottes Paradies
Da gibts nicht Krieg noch Sorgen
Kein Kampfgewühl, keinen Schmerz,
Da ist man gut geborgen
Am lieben Vaterherz
Das ist ja unsere Heimat
Und aller Menschen Streb'n
Ich täte bloss noch bitten
Um ein ganz kleines Gebet.
Vergelts Gott!
Mein Jesus Barmherzigkeit!
Allerheiligstes Herz Jesu, erbarme Dich Ihrer!'

=

'Farewell, you dear all
I left earth
I went to my husband
In God's paradise
There is no war or worry
No fighting frenzy, no pain,
You are safe there
My dear father's heart
This is our home
And all people strive
I would only ask
A little prayer.
Reward God!
My Jesus mercy!
Sacred Heart of Jesus, have mercy on her!'
