||I was in a Kommando. They call this in German Bomb Kommando. This
means, in English means dig out un-exploded bombs. So I dig out
together around 60 some odd bombs. I dig out from the ground. I,
We had just one explosion, which we was away about 100, 150 feet.
This one explosion which I had I was lucky, saved. Another bomb
was over there just just just making. They had over there a crane
about 200 feet high which was bringing the coal to the factory.
The planes tried to bomb the crane and they hit the bomb hit with
the stomach on the cement railing. Was chipped up a little bit and
slowed down the speed of the bomb and fall down down on the crystal
coals which it couldn't dig in too deep. They come to us to go to
defuse this bomb. So I went to this bomb to defuse it. No way we
could unscrew the fuse. So I ask them to bring me a chisel, a
metal chisel with a hammer. So I sit down on the bomb. And try to
knock it. So the head broke off. Everybody ran and I just got
up and looked at this and went away like nothing. I don't know.
If I was so stupid or if I didn't care for my life. There is
something more to this. If I was so lucky._________ _________ _________ _________ _________ _________
