[WWII: Letters – Little Girl]

[WWII: Letters – Little Girl]

Like I promised last week, I took some pictures of the personal letters at the WWII (Great Patriotic War) museum last Saturday.

This one amazes me with the handwriting, but saddens me with the content (like most of them).

Hello dear fighters of the Leningrad front lines,

I am writing this letter to you to ask you to avenge us, the kids of Leningrad, for everything that we have lived through in 1941.

I want this hateful war to end finally and I ask you, dear fighters of the Leningrad front lines, to free us kids from the faschist’ feet.

Hated enemy has caused us much pain and sorrow, hundreds of kids died because of all the bombing.

Dear fighters, come home soon as winners.

P.S. Leningrad: that’s what St. Petersburg was called during the USSR times. Basically it means the City of Lenin.
