Chapter 3

"It's official, we are at war with Germany"

The rumours are true. The news was announced on Radio Orange late last night. Everyone was gathered around the radio. The family was trying to keep it a secret from us workers, we would have found out sooner or later. I mean, how would they explain the possible bombs that will hit England? I don't know whether to collect all my savings and flee the country or to stay, and go down in ruins with my country.

Everything has been quiet today. Lady Downton didn't call for my assistance this afternoon as she always does when she does her one hour session of sewing and darning. I just wish I'd known earlier.

Today in the market I could tell people knew. Things just didn't seem right. Some shops were closed all day. Some of my good Jewish friends hadn't been seen all day. I knew from that moment that things weren't going to be back to normal from some time. Hopefuly things won't take off to a bad start. Maybe they will stop this silly arguement and call it all off. Though I don't think someone like Adolf Hilter will change his mind, he is becoming so mad with power that it is taking over all his sanity inside and replacing it with cruelty and Anti-Jewish thoughts.

I myself entirely disagree with his thought about the Jews. If they are disgracful as Adolf Hitler insinuates then the Christian are not better. Jews are identical to us, they just have different beliefs. Everyone is different, everyone has different way of life and we should all be treated the same. Adolf Hitler is wrong. As are his thoughts.
