Sascha Weinzheimer: Prison stories
Children talked to each other about the brutality they witnessed in prison camp.
Interview outtakes from THE WAR:
"So we used to compare notes on what we saw, and we would try to do one-up-manship. They were very famous for throwing babies up in the air and catching them with bayonets. And um, or herding them into um cathedrals or big buildings and then, um, strafing them, bombing them or um machine-gunning them. Um, and that's how they killed a lot at one time. So we had a couple of boys who had been out there and had missed being in that number. So this is what they saw. And so many kids in their own places and their own way saw different things. So, this is what we used to talk about. But that was our life."
