How amazing to be able to hear this memory from Barbara, She is quite an old lady now, but you can tell that when she relives the story of the time she lost her grandparents, it's as vivid as if it had happened a week ago. We read about casualties of war every day in the newspapers, and it's salutary to think that every one of them is in individual tragedy for a family like Barbara's. Great to have the story on the site.
