Stephanie, I know that you are in the United States living it up,
but while you were doing that I was working in a factory. Life
was cruel they barely even fed us. I was working in a factory in
Magdeburg, Germany. Some girls and I are were being forced to
work in a factory for Hitler. If we denied working, they threaten
to make us go to a concentration camp. Across our factory there
was another factory where only men worked.
remember 10 years ago when war still didn't occur. We lived
calmly in Leningrad, Russia. Mama would always ask me to go to
the shop in town to bring bread, but soon we heard on the radio
that Hitler was killing all Jews. I was terribly scared although
I wasn't a Jew. When winter approached everybody suffered from
coldness and hunger. Luckily, we had rich people in our town who
everybody traded their belongings with, in order to get food.
After winter, children and teenagers were sent away to Magdeburg,
Germany. Along with these children and teenagers there came
said before I was working in this awful factory. They fed us soup
that contained mainly water and if we were lucky, potatoes. I
miss Mom and Dad, but in the factory I met a girl that seems to
be quite nice. She spoke German and French. Her name was Anna.
Sometimes they'd allow us to go into town and buy something with
our money, but we have about an hour of time if not we get
shipped to the concentration camps.
I worked in the factory for years there were bombings around
town. Sometimes the ground would shake and the alarm in the
factory sounded. One night, that one night a bomb landed in the
factory and everyone was evacuated out. Outside everyone was
running terrified and I grabbed Anna's hand. I clearly remember
that I told her "Anna we must run to the train station to buy
tickets and go home". Anna and I ran to the train station and
there seemed as if there were millions of people. Children were
crying and screaming, I was both scared and annoyed.
caught a train and luckily made it to Russia. Russia was much
calmer, there we both found out that war had ended. Hitler had
lost, but he still had already killed so many Jews. Anna and I
went our separate ways, she went to her family, and I went to my
family. At home I arrived with hugs, kisses, and tears. Mom and
Dad still couldn't believe that I was alive. Today, I live here
in Russia living a happy life and hoping that war never occurs
