Iver Henningsen served in World War 1 as a medic on the Eastern Front. As many others he wrote letters home, but he was also drawing the places and people he saw.

This homepage is called "In grandfathers footsteps" because Iver Henningsens grandson, Kaj Henningsen, wants to visit the places his grandfather passed in Poland and Lithuania during the War.

The homepage presents samples of Iver Henningsen´s letters and drawings, as well as the project to follow his trail across the nothern part of Poland and through Lithuania.

We hope you will find this site of some interest. If you have any comments or questions please contact us.
