Today's WW1 Poet: Francisa Stocklin
Francisa Stocklin from Switzerland (1894 - 1931) was one of the German-language poets kindly suggested by Penelope Monkhouse from Germany.
Switzerland was neutral during the First World War but had to patrol her borders with Germany, France and Italy.
Both sides used Switzerland for the purposes of spying and commerce during WW1.
