Jews,Jewish Soldiers And Emperor Franz Josef (Video)

Franz Josef II was Emperor of Austria, King of Bohemia, King of Croatia, Apostolic King of Hungary, King of Galicia and Lodomeria and Grand Duke of Cracow from 1848 until the time of his death in 1916. During his rule, Emperor Franz Josef II of blessed memory transcended the fractious politics of European nationalism through his strength and through the influence of the Austro Hungarian monarchy. My Croatian grandfather, although he lived in America from 1907 until his death more than 40 years later, used to reverently maintain portraits of Franz Josef and Franklin Roosevelt. He was devoted to the US even though he never formally took citizenship in the US.
