Ironically, this is the only known photo of my grandfather. He died when my father was about 12, just after the end of WWII. This is taken in Nazi occupied Prague, and (if my smattering of German serves me) the headline says “Hitler Against London”. The newspaper is called the “Prague Daily Journal” (? I think) and is written in German. My parents were forced to learn German at school, and my mother wondered and was upset by the dissappearance of her Jewish friends from school.
Himmler believed that up to 50% of (non-Jewish)Czechs could be Germanised or “Aryanised”…….
So much to write about this, but words are failing me. I keep writing and deleting. I don’t want to get melodramatic yet I would like to present the horror of the times for those who lived them. The horror of the concentration camps can’t even be imagined by those of us who have never been there, but there is also the fear, the horror of those whose daily lives were lived under the tyrany of the Nazi regime …..Lest We Forget.
