What do you do when war destroys everything you love? Your home, your family, your life?

Kate Rosenkranz lived in London in 1940, when the bombs fell from the sky, and ruined everything.

Second entry,1939

Dear DiaryI had done what my mother had told me. Jenny, my younger sister, had been very strong throughout this. Our mother had died, less than two years ago. Her dying wish, was my purpose to the world. Let not your mother's death be in vain.

I had finally gotten enough money to afford one year of medical school, and it was the best experience of my life. Even though it was hard at times, I loved it. It’s where I met him. His name was Jack. He was my only friend, and partner in classes. We spent a lot of time together, and after a fortnight, we were a couple. We were inseparable. I loved him with all my heart, and he loved me. We were going to get married, by the end of the year.  

But then World War broke out. News reports, radio warnings, it was all over the place. I was timid, but not afraid. Nothing was sure yet, but the essence of war hung around the shoulders of everyone, weighing down their possibilities.

Jenny was now fourteen of age; a young woman. She was going through school, helping me by having a job of her own, and still she was able to remain positive. It was so sad, to see such a young soul, having to grow up without getting to keep her childhood. It hurt me, to think of her responsibilities at her age.  

Bill, our older brother, was twenty years old, and had been sent into the army. It was horrific, not knowing where he was, if he was still alive. It seeped through my thoughts, always there. Always disturbing me. 

Not only had we lost our mother, but now we might also lose Bill.
