End of the War

Categories: End of the war, Ira Motolyga

The war finished, I remember that day very well, I don’t know if that was the day war finished or not when the German captives were passing by and my sister Anka took me by the hand and shouted, «Irka, run quickly, you will be late and we won’t find our father». We ran up to the plant, we didn’t understand that there were the Germans and thought that were the soldiers passing by, we came to the plant. There was a lot of shout and noise at the plant, I didn’t understand anything, and then people came out crying and shouting, «The war is over!» I remember that day clearly.
