"Someone had blown up a German truck as it went through town. People were doing that. Taking pot shots at the Germans. The SS didn't like it. They would gather up the mayor and a few other people. If they didn't turn over the guilty person, they would kill the mayor. Or sometimes the whole town."My father got a message that told him he was supposed to go to the town square. Instead, he went into the woods. It's a good thing he did. Otherwise, I wouldn't be here."
