Apart from a desire to commit the life and times of Josef Kolbe to written form, a no less important purpose of this website is to make contact with yet undiscovered relatives or with descendants of people who might have known my grandfather and experienced with him the events I have described:

– a Kolbe or Gödel with roots in Röwersdorf?
– a Däubel relative from Transylvania?
– a grandchild of a pupil who attended the Horner Gymnasium or the Temesvár Cadet School?
– a family member of a soldier of the 50th Infantry Regiment?

Or perhaps you just wish to leave a comment.

Whatever the case, please send an e-mail to the address below in English, German, French or Italian.
