German Sterbebilder ( Death Cards)

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone! Over the past few years I have been putting together a collection of Sterbebilder ( also known as death cards or remembrance cards). These cards are a Roman Catholic tradition. When a soldier was killed these cards would be printed to hand out to those attending the funeral. I believe it would be nice to share some cards from my collection as well as see any cards that you may own. Please post them below!
