Many German boy soldiers are buried near Ypres, at the war cemetery at Langemark. For this reason the place is known as the Studentenfriedhof - the Students Cemetery.

Picture made in 1914. The boy on the left definitely is too young, but his brother will be wanted for the German army in the next years. Photograph taken from Krieg dem Kriege (1924), the famous anti war book by Ernst Friedrich.
