My wartime experience

First we were getting ready for war with Germany. Then we dug shelters and hid our clothes. Later on, when the Polish and Russian armies drew close, the Germans could no longer be stationed here, they had to withdraw.

When the Polish and Russian armies arrived in our territory, the German planes kept shooting at them. Shrapnel hit our house. One day, when the planes flew over my head and started firing, I ran away with the boys into the fields. Later, when the planes stopped firing, I returned home.
