André Jeunet Collection – A French soldier in World War I

Header And're Jeunet Collection

The digital collection André Jeunet Collection – A French soldier in World War I has been created by the University of Louisville, Louisville, Kentucky. André Jeunet was a French soldier who fought at the front in France, in particular near the Somme and at Verdun, and later also on the Balkan, in particular in Macedonia and near Monastir (Albania). The collection consists of 210 photographs, some postcards, and transcripts of some letters translated into English. Some letters from 1917 contained strong pacifist views. The letters were intercepted by censors and brought Jeunet before a court-martial, which decided to transfer him to the Balkan.
