  • General Info
General Information
Erich K�stner was the last documented World War I veteran who fought for the German Empire and the last who was born in Germany. Consequently he was the last Central Powers combatant of the Western Front. He was also the second oldest man in Germany. However, he was not the last veteran living in Germany. Franz K�nstler was an ethnic German who was born in and fought for the Austro-Hungarian Empire, migrating to Germany in 1946 and subsequently becoming a German citizen. Born in Leipzig-Sch�nefeld in 1900, K�stner joined the German Army in July 1918, in the "Sonder-Bataillon Hauck", and served on the Western Front in Flanders. He rejoined the military in 1939 and during the Second World War was a Major serving as ground support for the Luftwaffe, mostly in France. K�stner earned a doctorate degree in law from University of Jena in 1924 with a dissertation on Das landwirtschaftliche Pachtwesen und die Pachtschutzordnung unter besonderer Beleuchtung der Verh�ltnisse des fr�heren Gro�herzogtums Sachsen-Weimar-Eisenach. He subsequently worked as a judge at the Higher Regional Court, for which work he was awarded the Lower Saxony Merit Cross, 1st Class. 
March 10th, 1900 in Leipzig-Schönefeld  /  Died:   Jan 1st, 2008 - at the age of 107, natural causes
