I tried to behave decently

Daddy´s shop got closed and he was sent to the forced labour

“Indeed I remember that. Around our house there was the main road. It was really terrible. Tanks and cars were driving past. There were soldiers everywhere. It was pretty bad. We were scared. We were hiding in the room so that no one could see us. Daddy´s shop got closed down and he was sent to Ostrava. But I remember that he came back home once, packed something up and I did not know what it was. But later I realised it was money. He sent some cash to a certain doctor to acknowledge he was sick and did not have to go to Ostrava anymore. And then he stayed home with us.“
