I write because I have to. It is a compulsion. I do it to vent, to laugh and to remember. I blog because it has been so long since I had to write with a pen that my hand would go into cramp if I tried to write a journal.

  1. I love that you weren’t explicit with what exactly is going on here — but rather, just cranked up the suspense and left us hanging, to try to imagine just what happens next.

    1. Thank you so much. My father in law was in Dachau. He described so beautifully how humanity was stripped away by hunger and the lengths he would go to for a piece of bread or a rotting potato.

      1. Victoria, I’ve read so much about the camps and the horrors and dehumanization there. It’s amazing that those who came out were as whole and human as they were and that some people could hang onto decency and humanity under those conditions is truly a miracle. Your story is both horrible and infinitely sad (unless they were zombies or monsters, in which case, forget that!)

  2. This was really suspenseful. “Hunger does that to you. It strips away civilization and leaves you bare of niceties” was my favorite line šŸ™‚
