Trümmerfrauen- rubble clearing women

Post by Pummelchen »

Did you know....that in Berlin alone, there were at least 60000 "Trümmerfrauen" (rubble women)
clearing the streets from debris and demolishing bombed houses.

While their husbands and sons were in captivity as POW´s, too wounded to work or sadly died at the front....
these courageous women started rebuilding Germany right on day one after the capitulation.

Just another aspect of females serving their country!
