Robert Grosskopf (b. Germany, 1919), blinded veteran from the Second World War (WWII). "At the beginning of the war, I was still enthusiastic. I was recruited in 1939. One had to kill; it was 'you or me'. You had to have that attitude, otherwise you wouldn't make it. I am religious, so when I was scared I would pray. I got several distinctions: the Iron Cross 1 and 2, the Sturmabzeichung and a silver pin for man-to-man combat. In 1944, near Minsk, a bullet hit my head. This is how I became blind. I have kept my belief but I did not keep my decorations. They are no use to me."
