In World War I Luxembourg remained neutral, would therefore must not be drawn into the war. Nevertheless, the country was occupied by German troops in 1914. In order to protect its own population from possible attacks by the German military, the political leadership remained neutral. For this she was sharply criticized by Germany’s allied war opponents. Also in 1940, during World War II, German soldiers marched into Luxembourg, which was again neutral. In contrast to the First World War, Germany, now ruled by the National Socialists, wanted to incorporate Luxembourg into the German Reich, which also happened in 1942. Thousands of Luxembourgers should now go to war for Germany. Many refused, risking their own lives and that of their families, because the National Socialists severely punished resistance. When Luxembourg was finally liberated by US troops in 1945, large parts of the country were devastated by the war.
