On May 23rd 2012, the Europeana 1914-1918 roadshow held at the Public Library in Celje, Slovenia, turned up a reminder of both the injuries that were inflicted by the First World War, and the determination to combat such hardships displayed by those at the front.
A prosthetic leg with two different foot attachments belonging to Jakob Veber was brought to the road show by family member, Stanislav Veber. The leg and its two feet, made of wood, leather and iron rivets, are very well preserved. Jakob used the best foot (the full foot) for formal occasions, and the simple stump foot for field work and domestic use.
