0205 | Obituary | Johann Gruber



An obituary for Johann Gruber, a member of the 738th Regiment, 118th Jäger Division, killed during the fighting against the Partisan I Dalmatian Brigade (of the XXVI Dalmatian Division) on the island of Hvar, on 31 March 1944 (on the last day of the fighting, during the Partisan retreat from the island). The obituary reads: "In the Christian memory of our beloved brother, Obergefreiter Johann Gruber, a farmer in Eugendorf, who, on 31 March 1944 in World War II, far from the homeland, on the island of Hvar (Dalmatia), at the age of 31, died a hero's death for the fatherland. May he rest in peace!" As can be seen in the photo, he was a holder of the Iron Cross 2nd Class.
