Horst Kasner (born August 6, 1926 in Berlin as Horst Kaźmierczak; † September 2, 2011 in Berlin) was the father of Angela Merkel. He was a Protestant theologian. His marriage to Herlind Jentzsch had three children.


Ludwig Kasner [edit]

Ludwig Kasner (born October 28, 1896 in Posen as Ludwik Marian Kaźmierczak; † 1959 in Berlin) was born out of wedlock to Anna Kaźmierczak and Ludwik Wojciechowski.[1] He grew up under the care of his mother and her future husband Ludwik Rychlicki. In early 1915, at the age of 19, he was drafted into the Prussian army, fought on the Western Front and was captured by the French or deserted.[2] The Polish press published a photo in 2013 that allegedly shows Kaźmierczak in the uniform of the Blue Army in 1919/1920 (together with his wife Margarete).[3] This was formed under French command from German prisoners of war of Polish origin and fought at least in part in 1918 in France on the side of the Western Allies against the German Reich, and from 1919 to 1921 in the Polish-Ukrainian War and Polish-Soviet War. It is therefore possible that Kazmierczak also fought against Germany.[4]
