LOUIS RAEMAEKERS will stand out for all time as one of the supreme figures which the Great War called into being. His genius was enlisted in the service of mankind, and his work is entirely sincere and untouched by racial or national prejudice, will endure. When the intense passions, which have been awakened by this world struggle, have faded away, civilization will regard the war largely through these wonderful drawings.
It was left to France to pay the most fitting recognition to his genius and to his services in the cause of freedom and truth. In 1916 the Cross of the Legion of Honour was presented to him, and a special reception was held in his honour at La Sorbonne.
It has been well said that no man living amidst these surging seas of blood and tears has come nearer to the role of Peacemaker than Raemaekers. The peace which he works for is not a matter of arrangement between diplomatists and politicians; it is the peace which the intelligence and the soul of the Western world will insist on in the years to come.
During the Inter-war period he lived in Brussels and campaigned in favour of the League of Nations. He also tried to alert public opinion to the danger of Nazism to world peace. On the outbreak of WWII he moved to the USA where he, as ever, remained active, bringing the atrocities of the WWII to the publics attention through his weekly cartoons in the New York Herald Tribune and the afternoon tabloid PM.
Excerpt from RAEMAEKERS CARTOONS of the GREAT WAR vol. 3
THE OLD FRENCHMAN: "OUR GUNS COME NEARER."
12:30 a.m. In coöperation with the French on our immediate right we attacked the enemy at several points.
We have captured part of Ginchy and the whole of Guillemont. Our front now runs some five hundred yards east of Guillemont from Ginchy to near Falfemont Farm.
On the east side of Mouquet Farm we have also gained ground.
We have captured several hundred prisoners.
Between our right and the Somme the French have made substantial progress and captured a considerable number of prisoners.
Our aircraft did most useful work in coöperating with the artillery and infantry.
The enemy's aëroplanes, which made desperate attempts to interfere, were successfully engaged in many aërial fights and driven off with a loss of three machines destroyed and at least four others damaged, while we lost three.
12:10 p.m. Last night was generally quiet.
Fighting is in progress this morning near Mouquet Farm, south of Thiepval, and on the banks of the Ancre; also on our right about Falfemont Farm. We have gained ground.
Last night we carried out a successful raid on the enemy's trenches north of Monchy, capturing prisoners.
British Official, September 5, 1916.
