Pages of my 1945 Diary

during WW2 1944-45.

It is now 27810 days ago that I started writing in this little old diary of mine.

FEBRUARY 1945: (continued from previous page)

(continued from previous page)

We had to walk further into the fields and we were ordered to get ourselves settled in an open haystack were we had to sleep. In the morning the fields and the haystack were covered in snow and ice. It was also noticed that we were about 3km from our intended lager and we were taken there (marching!)

During one night we were ordered to pack up immediately and had to march through fields etc. And we walked and walked. Days on end without food and drink. One day we arrived on the banks of the Rhine and were ferried over to the other side and again after a walk we were quartered in a school room were we could sleep on the floor. On day I could organise some bread. For the rest, it was walking, hungry and thirsty with very little and bad sleep. During the day, digging trenches.
