A blog from World War 2

February 12, 1945

I worked till midday then I asked to go to the doctor. I had him give me a certificate declaring I’m ill and with this I hope to take the first steps toward being repatriated, like many others have. Giovanni Augone has already left, I gave him a note for my wife and I hope he returns home soon so he can give my wife news of me. This week, Domenico Minchella and Manfrino Verrengia will also be leaving. I hope to be repatriated soon too, or else things will get ugly. I don’t want to work anymore, I can’t take it. I’ve had no news about my wife and my children for 17 months. This is too cruel, too agonizing!
