3/2/2005 Among family photos I found a photo of a man being hung with this sign around his neck. There is a soldier behind him. The photo is dated 1918 (see next scan for writing on back). My guess is that the sign is in German, and maybe Hungarian, Polish and Italian. Can anyone tell me what it says? View the post, there are no responses
