Russian Infantry March In.  
 

freedom

"July 1944. At sundown, Russian infantry marched into the village of Grabowka. The neighbors and I rushed to the fence to look at the soldiers. We offered them water, which they were desperate for but their sergeant ordered them to keep marching. Finally, freedom had come for Mania and me, but for the rest of our family, it was too late."
