What happened to the Dog?

What happened to the dog? That was always the question after listening to my father’s tales of war childhood. There are several versions of the dog’s fate. When the II. World War ended, my parents were eight years old. They still quarrel whose war was worse: air raid bombing in the West or Russian invasion in the East. I want to find out how such traumatic experiences eat themselves into human’s memory, affecting children and grandchildren. It is the story about wartime childhood and quite sadly, it is a current story, told by children from Syria or Iraque. What happened to the dog – I always went with the reassuring answer, I never dared to asked the truth.
