Wilhelm Klemm (1896 – 1968)

The Leipzig born Wilhelm Klemm was a German poet and publisher. In the First World War he served in Flanders as a regimental doctor during which time he managed to publish his first poetry collection Gloria! (1915). From this collection I used the harsh and realistic poem Lazarett for the album Krieg. This was in fact the first song I composed for Krieg 1916.
