Franz Gustav Paulien

Franz was the husband of Gertrud (Lutter) Paulien. He was born 20-07-1905 and died in 1943. Shown in his uniform from WW2. From information from Carmen (Paulien) Martin, his granddaughter, Franz, was shot and killed at the war front when he was 36 years old, leaving a wife and 6 children. From conversations that I remember from some years back, two of these children died during the war and had to be buried in the snowbanks along the road. I'm not sure if they were fleeing their home or on a march to a camp. I remember it being said that they only ate if they could find some potatos buried along the route.
