I knew it! Being Jewish and hearing the stories from my german jewish grandparents this all sounded familier. You wrote it so well and you took the reader with you every step of the way. My how well you write the most painful stories and strangly enough it makes me want more. Thank you.
Thank you for sharing this story. I cant imagine the pain in bringing it all back to the service. I want you to know that it truly touhed me and I found myself crying. Your words are clear. Your characters are brought back to life in your story. I am sorry for your loss even though it was a long time ago.
Be well and keep writing.
