My grandpa was part of a tank division in balkans/greece. Got sent home to Germany after he lost an arm because of a grenade or some shit. His hobby has always been photographing and stuff and he happily continued doing that after the war even with one arm.

Hey dude, I saw your comments being deleted ahah, I remember what you said to me and I understand my comment could actually be confusing : My grandpa didn't left the army, he left my great grandma! But he left her around a year after the end of the war, when he was called by Leclerc to join him in Indochina. Hope it cleared that out! Have a good one

i think smth similar happened to mine, but instead of an arm he lost an eye.
2021-01-20 12:42
I know only for 2 great grandpa One belonged to Leclerc’s division blindée, but quickly left my grandma’s momma who didn’t want him to stay in the army, pretty sad story cuz they eventually got into very tough economical situation. One participated into local resistance near Villiers-Charlemagne regarding logistical stuff I have a nice story btw, my grandpa was like 5 at the time, and for some reasons my great grandpa had to hide the local chief of the resistance for some night. Eventually, my grandpa made college (the only one to make it in ten years in this very small village) and he had some kind of drawing teacher. It was that former resistance chief :D Terrible drawer but never had a bad mark lol

My great-grand parents role was getting taken over by the Italians as they were Croatian, they we're having a good time. The Italians liked eating and sleeping more than actually fighting any opposition so it was kinda like business as usual. Then when the area was taken over by the nazis, people were displaced massively as they took everyone's wooden houses for scrap wood and set up rules for huge taxation schemes. My family fled to Egypt to escape them where they basically sat in the desert for 2 years. Still love you jermans...

My great grandfather’s cousin (grandmothers side) was a Lieutenant in the U.S. Army. He got a bronze star, 2x WW2 Sterling medals, Good Conduct medal, Conspicuous Service medal and a Purple Heart. He died in the final days of the war in Germany to a sniper gunshot wound to the head. He was in the 78th Infantry Division, 310th Infantry Regiment. All my great grandfather’s cousins were americans because all his uncles and aunts went to the U.S. but my great grandfather’s parents stayed in Sweden so i still have some family there. Other than that as you may know Sweden didn’t fight so my grandfather (father’s side) had just turned 18 and finished military training. My other grandparents are boomers so they were just a year or two old.

That was actually a pretty common thing back then. A good portion of the italian-brazilian community believed in fascism, names like Francesco Matarazzo and Rodolfo Crespi made huge donations to the italian fascist government. The Japs and Jermans did the same thing. Vargas even banned the axis' languages during that time to "avoid" communication between them in brazilian soil.

both my grandpas fleed from silesia, near breslau, one went to a village near Passau and the other one ended up in Braunschweig, the latter one went throught dresden to get there, while the city was being bombed. Dresden got bombed the most out of all cities in germany, we even have a saying that roughtly translates to "this looks like dresden 45" you say it when something is very destroyed and unorderly. Also my grandpas were 5/9 at the time

I know that is not related to ww2 but both my grandparents fought in the spanish civil war, one in the fascist side and the other one fought with the republicans, my grandpa on the republican side was sent to a concentration camp afterwards in Madrid. Years later after the civil war finished my grandpa was one of the only ones who could write and read in his town (He was working for the church), and one of his neighbours reported to the police that he was still a communist and so on (I mean, he still was afterall but like he was accused to the police that he was like doing communist propaganda and that kinda stuff), then he was detained and sent to Barcelona to get killed by the military (He was going to get executed) but one day before the execution the priest sent a letter and he was released.

After the war, my grandpa that was fighting for the fascist signed up for the legion (Miltary group in Spain, you can look it up on google) but then after several years he started working as a miner in a small town nearby barcelona (They moved from Andalusia to Catalonia) and the other one ended up working in the factory that was processing the minerals from the mine (The town is called Súria if you want to check it out on google).

And theres a fact about my grandpa that was captured and sent to the concentration camp in madrid (He was captured at the Battle of the Ebro). When he returned home, he and his wife thought about moving to the Netherlands but when they were planning everything the netherlands got invaded :D So they stayed in Spain until my parents before I was born moved to Andorra.

So basically they almost moved to the netherlands, some part of my family left Spain when ww2 finished so i have family living in Belgium / Sweden. Most of this was illegal ofc, but there was a lot of famine in spain at the time so they thought that the risk was worth it I guess. Story about my family is not that weird tho, a lot of people moved to france aswell.

The one who was in the concentration camps didn't talk about it until the later stages of his life. If you are referring to Nazis, he never really said what he felt of them. I'm sure he did hate them though, I would. Imagine waking up every-day with a tattoo that says you are just a number to the people who murdered your entire family. However he definitely didn't bare any hate towards Germans. He actually went nearing the end to a visit in the camps with an Austrian party which I have to imagine is a super hard thing to do. Also he made friends with a German officer in one of the camps he stayed, and that officer was the one to inform him that his father passed.

1 grandfather: cadet from september 1941 to december 1941, sniper from december 1941 to november 1942, radioman in frontier forces from november 1942 to jule 1946. In 1941 he was 19 y.o. on his passport and 17 y.o. in fact. Two great-grandfathers (the father of my grandfather I wrote about) and the father of my paternal grandmother also fought, but I was not familiar with them, they died before I was born. One was a career artillery officer and i don't know much about the second one.

It was soldiers on bikes against the German warmachine, after a few days Rotterdam was bombed and the Dutch surrendered. After that it was pretty much live as usual I think. His father-in-law, so my grandma's father was nsb-scum. My grandpa hated his guts till he died.

On an open road in the netherlands he stood in front of an enemy soldier but his gun jammed or sth. The other dude had mercy and only shot him in the leg. He still had the bullet in his leg when he died in the mid 2000s

Great grandfather was a cop up north during the Nazi occupation, but was actually working for the resistance. Would smuggle arms and inform people who were going to get sent to camps so that they could escape. I know he also helped blow up bridges and walked across France from a camp after being liberated by the Americans (so he could get back home). Other great grandfather (English) was in charge of trains in India and would organise the movement of supplies during the war.

Both British, Grandfather on Dads side was in the army prior to WW2 in the Black Watch, then later on part of the Chindits probably during '43/44. Not sure about Great Grandfathers regiment/unit on mothers side, seen a small photo of him in uniform though.

My grandpa was a flight mechanic at an RAF base in the UK, which I guess is lucky when you consider that his brother was a pilot in South east Asia, he flew hurricanes to fight the Japanese, and was murdered in an ambush when him and his crew landed to investigate a seemingly abandoned airstrip, he was the only casualty. He’s remembered on a memorial in Singapore somewhere

One of them fought on the eastfront against Soveits and was later imrpisoned because he was part of the ninth army division that surrenderd in Stalingrad. Later he was sent home to East Germany and reunited with his family. The women he started a family has also quite a tragic story. She was from Prussia, and was left alone pregnant in the mid years of WW2. When soviets came closer she left to Dresden was eventually getting bombed but survived and later giving safe birth to my grandfather. She was scared because of the Soviets when the war ended but nothing really happened with her. The great grandfather from my fathers site also fought on WW2 but i dont know much about him unfornately :/ He fought on the east aswell the west

Greece Graecos
Both of my grandpas did the WW2 (the first one lived the WW1 as a baby). My Greek grandpa (o pappous) was young when the nazis arrived but he had to carry a gun at 13y/o to protect the village walls. The other one fought against Germany when they tried to pass through Belgium, he got captured and deported to Germany. He spoke natively French and German and was fluent in Dutch so he got out of the prison to fill in administrative roles in Namur. He got mentally destroyed by the war and never talked about it once it was over, my mother is sad not to know anything about it. My uncle talked to us a lot about what happened back then, he was a priest and he crossed the borders with a lot of prisoners and jews to save them. He had access to information due to my grand pa's job
