Abstract

German flying lieutenant Werner von Bülow was killed by a Romanian soldier at 7 a.m. on May 8, 1920. He received a gunshot wound during the crossing from the left bank of the Maros to the Hungarian side, which came under Romanian control, which caused him such severe internal bleeding that he died of the injury on the Maros bank, on the Hungarian side. He was only 23 years old when he died. Bülow was released from French captivity and wanted to return to Germany with his companion, German flight lieutenant Franz Clemens Schiffer. Schiffer luckily survived the incident. The case gained wider publicity after the mistaken belief that Werner von Bülow was the son of General Karl von Bülow and the grandson of Chancellor Bülow arose. With the deep condolences of the population, Werner von Bülow was buried in the Lutheran cemetery in Makó at the expense of the town. A memorial column was erected on his grave from a public donation. The monument is still there today in a heavily cracked state. Werner von Bülow received the II. and the German military award of the First Class Iron Cross. Werner von Bülow is also included in the Hungarian National Archives database of World War I casualties. The article describes the circumstances of the murder, burial and memorial.
