my grandfather(name: gyula) is from hungary shortly before the war the czechs attacked hungary and he was at the border and they came with no warning he was lying with a friend beside a road in a kind of canal. he saw explosions and heard shootings suddenly two men appeared in front of him and shooted he started firing back and they fell down. he looked to his friend and when he touched him, his body felt aside and gyula saw that his half face and head was missing. he stayed in the canal and didnt moved and he hide or act as an death , later that night the hungarian army striked back and found my grandfather he was the only survivor of the regiment. about this day he wrote later ended his childhood cause he killed the first time and saw the death. later the years the nazis accroached the might in germany. hungary were in alliance with them. but the germans didnt trusted the strength of the hungarian so they didnt really fought at the front line. but in the inner of the occupied countries they fought against partisans. in ukrainia but both sides didnt really wanted to fight against each other. and so one day they were standing in the forest, one each side of a glade there were standing the soldiers and every morning while they were standing in front of each other a group of pigs ran over the glade. so my grandfather as the officier said to the ukrainians lets shoot the pigs and make fifty fifty. next morning they shooted the pigs and a officier and the cook came out and took the meat of the pigs and arranged a three day peace at their small line. and had good times in a bad time. in my family the firstborns son name is gyula so my grandgrandfathers name is also gyula he was kind of in resistance in hungaria but we dont know exactly anyway the gestapo wanted him and got him later and tortured him to death but before they got my grandfather but the gestapo got the wrong gyula. they wanted to beat him and others the others were hitten brutal but he cried and howled "dont hit him" so they said <Mod Edited for Language> and he didnt got beaten later he sat smiling between the others with bloody and blue eyes and they couldnt smile. In the prison of the cage more exactly in the basement of the prison there were standing the gestapo guys and the prisoners in one room during a bombardment. the prisoners at the side which was close to the collaps and the germans on the strong side. the building was damaged or something. but the strong side got an direct hit and the prisoners were free. he came free and got catched again and came to another prison which was his old school building. in vienna. he escaped cause of his knowledge about the building and the areal and was almost free but the russians invaded the city and he had to flee again. in the end he ended up in germany. bought lace cause a jew told him, got rich, builded up an factory got three kids got died of parkinson in the age of 93 and i never really knew him. he spoke everything on camera and my uncle typed it down. but my german grandfather hes telling all the time how they kicked the russians asses and from the way back and his story ends at the close combats in berlin. he speaks perfect russian now he learned it in sibiria and came alive back. he stayed in the army till he pensioned off. and when you talk with him you are all the time somewhere in the war in estonia russia the lost home the positions. the war never really ended for him.
