The Hell of War

During the second world war, Kurt was captured behind enemy lines and was shipped to a work camp in Dresden.  He was sheltering in an underground meat locker when the city was fire bombed by the Allies, killing an estimated 135,000 people.  He was put to work removing the bodies of women and children from the air raid shelters - people dead from concussion, fire or suffocation. "Civilians cursed us and threw rocks as we carried bodies to huge funeral pyres in the city.”
