Signed on the stone. From the periodical Kriegszeit. Künstlerflugblätter (no. 26, February 10, 1915).

The cover of this issue shows German survivors from the cruiser Emden, which had been beached and disabled by the Australian cruiser Sydney in a naval skirmish in the Indian Ocean on November 8, 1914. Sixty-five issues of Kriegszeit were published between August 1914 and March 1916, by which time public enthusiasm for the war had waned; Cassirer then stopped publishing Kriegszeit and replaced it with the politically neutral periodical Der Bildermann (The Picture-Man).
