Erwin von Gizycki attended the 1939 Anzac Day Service at the Mentone memorial wearing his medals received as a German soldier in the First World War. Returned soldiers present gave him a warm welcome. Chris Szaday, a Swiss resident, writes the story telling how his grandfather and family were received in Mentone after escaping the rise of the Nazis in Germany.
