The first story is about the sabotage of five German army cars on a warm August day.

Book Description:​

These four collected stories are my memories of the last year of the Second World War, from August 1944 to May 1945. My mother helped me sort out the facts in 2001. The first story is about the sabotage of five German army cars on a warm August day. The two very conscious perpetrators were two 4-year-old boys. At the end comes the liberation, in our village by the Canadians. In between how I behaved in the queue for the soup kitchen and what the pot bought. Often that was potato peel soup. That was mainly water with some sand and perhaps a faint potato-like taste. I thought it was really cool that as a 4-year-old I could go on a hunger trip. That had a purpose. Firstly, the ‘grown-ups’ often got something extra when showing a small child. Secondly, I was allowed to collect wood from the forest. Some soldiers were not above shooting at adults if they saw it. I came home asleep that evening. Wood was piled sky-high on our cart, after I – bastard – had pointed out a wood-rich spot.
