ok so its the end of World War 2 in Poland and the Soviets and the Allies are on their way. Liberation is at hand for the Jews and Gypsies. What is life like in the ghetto/concentration camp? Who are you? What memories do you have from before the war? this can be many characters or just one, they dont have to know each other either. You decide and Start us off. :)
Cool idea. How about a soldier in the Red Army and a R.A.F. bomber pilot in addition to the Jew?
Alan fought hard to regain control of his Avro Lancaster. The rest of the crew was dead; had been hit by shells when the German ack-ack had hit the plane. And now the tail was on fire and the controls were mushy and not responding. He had only a rough idea that he was somewhere near Krakow, Poland, and it looked as though he would have to either bail out or go down with the plane. The altimeter was showing a height that meant the earth was too close for comfort, so Alan said a prayer, checked his parachute, and jumped.
I like that idea, please continue with it. Would you like me to add on to your storyline or add my own character? We can continue in the third person too. Thanks for adding a couple characters. :)
Felcia didn't even bother to look up anymore when she heard a plane fly over the camp. She had given up hope years ago when she had to watch her children get shot in front of her. They had stolen a morsel of food from the German guard who had fallen asleep on duty. They had been celebrating their success when they were found by the guard on patrol. Felcia only found out about it when it was too late. Left with no one, she just awaited her death day.
She saw out of the corner of her eye, a brightly colored flash in the sky that caught her attention. She looked more carefully at it and saw that it was a man falling from the sky with a parachute. "Zobacz!" she whispered to the woman next to her as she pointed up to the sky, "Look!" The woman looked to where she pointed and was suprised to she the man. "He will never survive here by himself," she said, "he will be sent to a camp with the men, and be starverd like we are."
They then heard a loud crash and an explosion on the east side of the camp wall. They were forced to the ground by the impact. When the smoke had cleared, they saw many German soldiers guarding the east side of the camp. Where there had been a tall electric fence and a cinderblock wall before, there was now a gaping hole and a burning British plane. What is happening? How can this be? Felcia thought. Are we finally free?
sorry was busy with exams....
Alan stumbled, then caught himself. He had landed maybe half a kilometre from the flame-tinged cloud of smoke which marked his plane. A couple of small hills blocked his view of anything but the cloud. His parachute lay next to him, like a huge mushroom. Since he was in Poland, the Germans were probably somewhere nearby. So he hastily folded his parachute, stowed it beneath a convenient
bush, and set off in the direction of the smoke.
Felcia looked over the wreckage to see a man walking towards the camp. He looked tall and like a fighter-pilot she had seen pictures of as a girl. She thought that had to be the man who had flown the plane that had hopefully set her and the rest of them free. She decided that she had to thank him for saving them all. She ran to the giant hole and tryed to run through it. A large German soldier caught her around the waist and shouted at her to get back with the others. She fought to get through all the while screaming at the top of her lungs, "Dziękuję! Thank you!" Then the soldier hit her on the head ans she was out cold.
Alan tied another rag around his freely-bleeding arm. The bullet had only grazed him, but there was so much blood that he feared the Germans would be able to find him. It had been a stupid thing to do, he decided, walking right up to that prison camp or whatever. But that woman had such a sorrowful and strangely magnetic gaze. She had been in an extremely pitiful condition, and Alan was very disturbed. That guard had treated her very roughly. Surely it was against international laws to mistreat prisoners?
When Felcia awoke, she didn't know where she was. She looked around and didn't recognize anything. The only thing she remembered was a man walking towards her. Then she realized that she couldn't see either. She tried to reach up to touch her eyes but her hands were bound behind her. She tried to move her head only to find that it also was bound to something, perhaps a stake or pole of some sort. She began to panic, thinking the worst; thinking she was going to be executed. "What had I done to deserve this?" she thought.
Franz finished his costume by jamming a straw hat over his dark curls. He had to work quickly, for one slight mishap and the game was up. Deserting from the German Army during a world war was no joke. He hated deserting and felt he deserved to be shot. He loved the Fatherland and had lost his father during the Great War, but those Jews the troop had seen last week! And the horrifying rumours that one heard! He couldn't be a part of it anymore, even if it were the S.S. and not the regular army that had charge of the prison camps. Franz stuffed his uniform- he would burn it later- and some food into a knapsack , slung it on, and sneaked off through the deepening twilight.
(it says you added to the story but i cant see it!!!!)
I'm sorry, I only realized today that you had replied to the earlier post. Yeah, I did add a bit with a new character but I think something went wrong. I'll put it up again soon.
haha ok sounds good :)
Felcia then heard many voices as people seemed to gather all around her. Next she heard the heavy thump of boots climbing up steps and walking across a wooden platform stopping close to where she was tied. In a loud, thunderous voice he bellowed, "Come all you filthy Jews and witness the punishment of one of your companions! She will die because she tried to escape from this work camp. She will be the exapmple of what will happen if any of you try to escape."
Felcia cringed when he said those words and started to weep silently.
"Beside her will perish her accomplice, one who claims to be a part of the British Air Force. He claims to have no relation to this woman but we have found him to be a liar! Therefore they must both die for what they have done."
With that, Felcia began to weep loudly. She had known that she was going to die in this camp. She had no more reason to live. Her children had died and her husband was most likely dead too. But to have an innocent person she didn't even know die because she had tried to escape just wasn't right.
She kept thinking about the man she assumed was tied up beside her. What if he had a family? What would thier lives be like without him? Would they even find out about how he died? The she decided that she was going to make sure that man was set free no matter what the cost. But she had to think of something fast!
Hey, sorry i havent written..... i won't be able to until dec. becos ive got these stinky exams coming up.... =P ill write then if its ok with u.
Yeah thats fine with me :) good luck on those exams :)
I'm Back! thanks.
Alan recovered conciousness. He was tied up next to the woman from the camp, and he figured he was going to die. He started praying. suddenly, BANG! there was a huge explosion by the wall. The SS officers pushed the prisoners back and leveled their guns at the smoke. When it cleared away, however, noone was there. "Something's wrong. Put those prisoners in solitary confinement, we'll execute them tomorrow." The Hauptmann announced.
Yes! pls. do! gossamergirl, are u ok with it?
