    Thought shall be the harder , heart the keener,
    Courage the greater as our strength faileth.
    Here lies our leader ,in the dust of his greatness.
    Who leaves him now , be damned forever.
    We who are old now shall not leave this Battle,
    But lie at his feet , in the dust with our leader

    Very interesing. Sieg oder Siberia - probably this item is from the 1944 when nothing was to lose anymore. We have even today here a good saying: "Death here or in the Siberia!" The meaning is that it is much more honorable to die for your country then to be a POW and sent to Russian POW camp in Siberia.
