    Siren. It was 11:00 when the siren went off. We’re not allowed to leave the factory and our boss won’t even let us go to the shelter. I managed to sneak out and run to the nearest shelter. The siren stopped at 3:15, when I got back to the factory the others had already eaten […]

    The siren went off at 11:20, it ended at 3:40. The siren has never lasted this long since I’ve been in Munich.

  • March 14/15, 1945

    Yesterday and today were filled with pre-raid sirens and sirens. But they didn’t come to Munich, they chose other targets. The weather has been lovely these past few days, clear skies and warm temperatures, the snow is gone and it’s no longer cold.

    While we were sleeping last night, the siren went off. It was 11:00 when we heard it, we got dressed quickly and ran to the shelter. It was over after an hour. We hadn’t even fallen back asleep when the siren went off again. We got dressed again and ran to the shelter, it was […]

    Today the siren went off again precisely at noon. The siren always seems to go off at noon. Winter has returned. It has snowed for 10 consecutive days. February was like spring, but now it’s mid-March and we have yet to see the sun, plus it’s cold. I was certain the cold wouldn’t return since […]

    The siren went off again today but thank God they didn’t bomb. 10 days have passed since I tried to be repatriated to Italy, I haven’t given up yet but still have not found a way. They want me to die in Germany!

    Last night while we were deep in sleep, the siren went off. It was midnight, we got dressed quickly and ran to the shelter. After a few hours it was over with no damage, apart from the frigid cold we had to endure upon leaving our warm beds and running outside. There’s snow on the […]

  • The first Sunday of March 1945

    At around 10:00, the siren went off. It’s still snowing, people run frantically in every direction looking for a shelter. We heard on the radio that there are many bomber formations, that’s why everyone is running hastily. We were able to go back home at 11:00, they didn’t come to Munich this time either.

    This morning when I stepped outside to go to work, I was astounded to see snow on the ground. After more than a month, the snow and cold temperatures are back, it snowed all day and it was very cold. It feels like January again.

  • March 2, 1945

    Like yesterday, the siren went off for about 2 hours.
