    Happened in 1944/45

    One day my grandmother and her four little children were plucking berries and mushrooms in a wooded area in southern Germany. Their house was struck by a direct hit of a British bomber, so they were evacuated to the country side, my grandfather was a soldier serving in France. Anyway, when they were in the woods, suddenly an Allied low-level fighter started his attack sortie on the women and four little children - the girls wore colourful skirts and it was clearly visible they were no military targets by any means. Quick-reacting, my grandmother pitchforked her little children into a ditch and threw her coat over them in order to camouflage them. After that she covered herself, not one second to late because a fusillade of the fighter's machine guns whizzed through the air and struck a tree trunk just a few centimeters above her head. The fighter banked up and gave up. In another incident fighters were attacking the passenger train my grandmother was driving with. After the emergency stop she covered near the tracks whilst ricochets whizzed trough the air. My family barely survived these attacks, others did not have this much luck.

    My grandfather on my mother's side helped hiding a german who bailed out of the wermacht.

    My grand uncle on my father's side died when his boat was hit by a german torpedo.

    My grandfather on my father's side served in The Independent Norwegian Brigade Group in Germany after the war.

    On the tenth of november 1918, a day before the war ended, an uncle of my grandmother died in a fierce firefight. He was only a mile from home after four years of trench warfare at the Yserfront, and he and his fellow soldiers were already celebrating the end of the war - with beer. They were pretty buzzed when they saw retreating German soldiers in the little village of Oordegem, on a slope in front of them, and they decided to challenge these troops. Instead of confronting a few rearguard troops they met with strong German resistance, more numerous than suspected, and the skirmish was won by the Germans.

    This monument commemorates the event:



    My other grandmother's brother survived the Great War at the Western front, yet he was not demobilized after the war, but ended up in Germany, being part of the occupation forces (1919).

    My parental grandfather's brothers and himself were resistance fighters during WW2.

    The village I live in is known for its active collaboration during WW2, and is considered a 'black village' - there was a huge riot over here in the seventies, when veterans of both parties fought it out on the streets. The last Waffen SS veteran of this village died a couple of years ago. On the eleventh of july, a boy in a martial outfit hitting a drum will summon the Flemish nationalists in our community to gather in our church, and all seats will be occupied.
    “We think that we are born today tabula rasa without a history, but man has always lived in the myth. To think that man is born without a history within himself — that is a disease. It is absolutely abnormal, because man is not bom every day. He is born into a specific historical setting with specific historical qualities, and therefore, he is only complete when he has a relation to these things. If you are growing up with no connection from the past, it is like being born without eyes and ears and trying to perceive the external world with accuracy. Natural science may say, “You need no connection with the past; you can wipe it out”, but that is a mutilation of the human being.” – Carl Gustav Jung, 1957

    One of my great granduncles fought in WWII, though I don't know if he fought in the European theater or the Pacific.

    I know that apparently my after my great grandfather died they found some paraphernalia whilst clearing out his garden shed, a german cap and medals, a fully functioning Luger pistol with ammo (among others), a German dagger and a few hand grenades! I was young at the time so when I was told this so I'll have to dig up more info on it.

    Unfortunatly' my gradparents fought on the wrong side.

    My grandfather (dads dad) worked on and repaired British tanks back at home in Britain. My grand father was an skilled engineer. (this saved him from being sent to the front lines)

    One of his stories was--- I saw humans body parts scattered around the tank. Our job before we start work on the tank was to depose of all body parts out of the tank. These tanks which my Ggrandfather repaired were up against the Germans tanks.
