In 2009 the ComingWorldRememberMe brought up the idea to make 600.000 small statues representing 600.000 persons. With this initiative they want to commemorate all World War 1 victims that fell on Belgian soil by creating a symbol for every victim. From 2014 everyone was able to participate in this project by requesting to be godfather/-mother or attend a workshop in one of many locations in Belgium where you could build your own statue. On July 20, 2015 I requested to adopt a grave online. I was linked to the German soldier Paul Klemmt, my second German adoption grave.

I am still looking for information about this unit. If you can help me find any information, please send an e-mail to email@example.com.
Up until now I haven't found any relatives of him. I really hope to find some soon.
