October 15th, 1939



Something has happened here in Poland only a few weeks ago. Germany has moved into our country and claimed all of western Poland as part of Germany, including our little town. A man named Adolf Hitler is the Führer, or leader of Germany. It is lucky that I speak German. I have heard that war was declared, that other countries like Great Britain and France have decided that since Germany took Poland, they would fight. It seems so far away. I wonder if Poland will be much different.

I have graduated from school and I am now an apprentice. I have been learning how to do useful things like drill and weld. Someday maybe I will be a shipbuilder or an engineer. I am learning so much.
