A blog from World War 2

September 26, 1943

We’re at the Verona train station. I tried to escape. I stepped out on the opposite side of the tracks and tried to climb into a freight train that was at the station. I heard a shout behind me and saw a German with his rifle pointed straight at me. I immediately stepped back into the cattle car. 

We’ve arrived in Dachau, a concentration camp. We slept on wood planks.

    If you look in the right column toward the top of the page, there is a section called “Follow this story”, click on the link “By e-mail” and you will be updated via e-mail every time there is a new post.
