David Cornies (1884 - 1938)

During the First World War, young Mennonite men in Ukraine were required to serve their country.  In keeping with their non-violent beliefs, many of these men chose to do alternate service in forestry or to serve in the Red Cross.  Here is a picture of David Cornies in his Red Cross uniform.  In the document Nachkommen von Martin Cornies.pdf, David Cornies is number 133.
