WHO ARE THE HUNS?

128 Franc-Tireur Warfare

128 Franc-Tireur Warfare and Cruelty. by the merchant Wilhelm L. (Imperial Government Report of 3rd of December 1914—4th of January 1915) in Antwerp. He swore upon oath that as early as the 2nd of August 1914, a mob plundered and destroyed German cafés, and that with his own eyes he saw German girls dragged along the whole length of the street by their hair. He also gave evidence that as early as July, French officers of an Engineer corps visited the forts in the company of Belgian officers. He told of the murder of several German sailors and women. Witness Elizabetha R. (Lower Court of Schwerin, 13th January, 1915) gave witness on oath to horrible ill-treatment in Antwerp. 12. Eugen Sch. believed the principal blame for the bitter feeling against, and molestation of, the Germans could be attributed to the Burgomaster de Vos. On the 3rd of August, while everything was still quiet, he caused a public proclamation to be issued to the effect that the Germans had broken their word and marched into Limburg. At the same time he caused the alarm to be sounded, to call out the citizen watch. The proclamation certainly contained no direct incitement to commit outrages against the Germans, but certain turns of speech such as: "Our native city is in danger," and so on nevertheless caused a great outburst of feeling against them. As Director Sch. ,.on the afternoon of the 3rd of August, went to his office, he saw 6 to 8 Flemings set about a German sailor with rubber clubs and pieces of iron and leave him lying half-dead. Shortly after in an inn he saw a German dock-laborer stabbed by a Belgian. Close by there was a police-station. The police however did not show themselves. 13. Katherina H. whose home is in Anzing, declared: "On the 2nd of August this year, in the evening, everything in the German inns "Hamburger Buffet," "Adlershof," "Kaiserhof," "Deutscher Kaiser," "Berliner Rangen," "Stadt Dortmund," "Bremer Kttche," and "Imperial" was broken to bits. The German hotels, Braun, Weber and Germania, in the neighborhood of the railway-station, were stormed by the mob, and everything stolen On the way to the station, in the

Franc-Tireur Warfare and Cruelty. 129 main street from the station to the town, witness saw a little girl, io to 12 years of age, thrown from the upper story of a house into the street. The child fell upon the pavement quite close to her. The police and the military did not attempt to interfere with the excesses of the mob. 14. Miss B. deposed: "My father, Otto B. for over 25 years a contributor to the "Berliner Tageblatt," and well-known as an author not only in Germany but also abroad, was for the last 2 years domiciled in Brussels." On suspicion of espionage and on account of his connection with the "Berliner Tageblatt," they were both interned. Here everything of any value was taken from them. "I do not know what became of my father." . .. She touchingly described their reunion in captivity: "He was changed beyond recognition, haggard, dressed in thin cotton underwear without socks, with only slippers on his feet and trembling with cold. His face plainly showed the traces of recent fearful ill-treatment. The whole left side of the face and nose had become green and blue from the blows he had received. Over the eyes and on the brow were great abrasions. He was unwashed and in a shocking state of neglect and exhaustion. He knew me, inquired after relatives, and began to weep bitterly. He complained like a little child. I communicated the result of my visit to the American consul. He replied that this was the 4th or $th case of the kind. It seemed as if they wished to drive the prisoners insane through ill-treatment. In spite of the seriously ailing condition of my father, he was again put in a cell, and I discovered from the authorities that he had already eaten nothing for eight days, and also that he had been confined in a padded cell. Six weeks ago a healthy, mentally alert man, my father is to-day broken in body and spirit, his mind seriously affected, with only slight and short intervals of clarity." (See the details of this case, 1st Edition p. 151.) The innumerable reports of the German papers are one in their complete accord with the official bulletins as to the attitude of the Antwerp police being one of complete passivity. Witnesses declare that police officials stood in the immediate vicinity with "smiling mien, and without raising a finger to interfere." A number of Belgian gendarmes were directly con- Miiller, Who are the Huns? 9
