Original waggon destroyed at this location by SS in the final days of WW2 in April 1945, just before Eisenhower, Bradley, Patton and Tenenbaum arrived.

Matthias Erzberger was born in the shtetl of Buttenhausen (Münsingen, near Bad Urach and Stuttgart) and from age 6 was a schoolmate of Rothschild in Buttenhausen. He married wealthy Paula Eberhard in the nearby shtetl of Rottenburg-Baisingen. Erzberger made a quick career and, after just one month as a minister (without portefeuile) was the sudden envoy (by who?) to Paris-Compiègne and agreed to Germany's total capitulation on 9.11.1918, the day of sudden turmoil and putsch in Berlin, the day of Kaiser Wilhelm's forced abdication. The Kaiser's abdication ("regime change") was pressed / blackmailed for by US-president Wilson and "declared" by Max von Baden, against and without the Kaiser's consent. Both Scheidemann and Liebknecht at the same time publicly proclaimed leadership of the new German "republic", and Ebert actually obtained it (from who?). Erzberger then attended the Versailles World War I reparation conference, and then introduced a inheritance tax and especially the automatic income tax (still valid today !) in Germany to make sure that those "debts" would be repaid (officially repaid by Germany in 2012) ... Thanks Butte !

Not to forget Georg Siegmund Warburg next door at the Seeburg - Schloss Uhenfels in Bad Urach and Ernst Jaeckh, who is also from Bad Urach. They were all (Erzberger, Rothschild, Warburg, Jaeckh, ...) born there in the same year.

Erzberger was executed in 1921 in the Black Forest, only 10km from the Rothschild's clinic in Nordrach-Kolonie, where Lenin's agent handler (in Gabelsbergerstrasse, Munich) Mrs Hope Bridges Adams had worked before (for who?).

Western Front in mid-1918 shows German advances up to Compiègne (350 km deep inside France !!!), following a separate peace with Russia on the Eastern Front (Treaty of Brest-Litovsk). That is why Compiègne was the obvious choice for Marshall Foch to stay at ... Not so obvious why "Germany" chose to be the total loser of this war (Compiègne Armistice & Versailles Dictate).
