April 9, 1945

Last night at exactly midnight the “pre-raid siren” went off, then 2-3 minutes of regular siren, but while the siren was wailing, the bombers dropped their loads. We barely had time to jump out of bed when an explosion shook us. We got dressed and ran to the shelter, but it was pointless. Once we reached the shelter, the bombers had already terminated their mission and had left. Today at 4:00, the siren went off again after the pre-raid siren wailed all day. After 30 minutes, the bombers appeared in the sky over the city, they dropped plenty of bombs but in the outskirts of the city.
