Karl Pfifferling

These are my Opa Karl's medals from World War I. The Iron Cross is on the left and the Honor Cross is on the right. It was earning the Honor Cross that enabled him to be released from Buchenwald. According to my cousin, Peter Jacobsohn, the medal that looks like a helmet was given to soldiers that suffered war wounds.
