Christmas 1963: How a German sailor’s life changed in Duluth
A headline on the front page of the News Tribune 46 years ago today — “He
Won’t Be Home for Christmas” — was so cold, so heartless. And so wrong, as

“They saw a movement … and the organizer of the trip shot immediately,”
Jacobs wrote. “He hit me in both legs. The left calf was gone. My right
femur [was] completely crushed. The hunter used soft lead bullets. So the
result was pretty good. I know now how an animal must feel.”
