Can anyone confirm that Joseph was indeed the son of Heinrich August Lindner? I've read it and seem to have found his fate here(7th down from top): http://www.denkmalprojekt.org/oesterreich/hallwang_wk1u2_salzb_oe.htm
Being correct would be nice, but the following really reveals the fate of many of the craftsmen. I thought about putting it under the current Daly colour thread but thought I had hijacked it enough.
So the question is usually raised as to what happened to the artistians/craftsmen of Suhl and surrounding areas. Well this link, http://www.denkmalprojekt.org/dkm_deutschland/zella-mehlis_lerchenberg_wk1_thuer.htm
, is a site that is a pretty vivid reminder of the costs of war. In researching many of the makers I recognize many, many of the names. And the posting just happens to coincide near the time of Memorial Day.
