had to sit on concrete until the air raid was over. They were exhausted from

working and wanted to lie down and sleep in their barrack. Barbara said one

time she did not go to the bomb shelter, even though her mother begged her

to. She remained in her barrack, exhausted and was lying in her bed when an

SS female guard came to check and started to beat Barbara with a truncheon.

Luckily, another SS guard came in, one who favoured Barbara, as she was a

good singer for the morning march to work, so the beating stopped. I recalled

barrack to avoid going to the shelter. She was also discovered by a female SS

guard who beat her on the back with a truncheon. Unfortunately for my

aunt, no- one interrupted this beating.
