    Need a translation

    I recently viewed a copy of the original version of "All Quiet On The Western Front" and in the very beginning of this masterpiece there is a scene where a teacher is speaking to his students.
    Behind the teacher is a blackboard with some writing on it that I believe is in German.
    There are two different scenes of this teacher and what looks like two different writings on that same blackboard.
    I am a stickler for details and the continuity in the films that I watch and would like to know if any one here can translate what in on that blackboard.
    Can any one help me with this request?

    If you still have the movie, type the words into a translation page on Google (or some other one). No?

    Thanks Mike.
    I never thought of going to IMOb for the answer to my question.

    Oops. New here, and don't know why the earlier replies did not appear on my first look.
