The 1940's was an incredible time.  The Nation's factories were buzzing turning out equipment and machinery for the war effort.  Women were in non traditional roles and the factories were humming to keep up production.  Do you remember hearing stories of how people pulled together during these days?  My Mom worked in a factory – she wound condensers and worked 7 days a week.  My Dad was in the Army Intelligence and worked intercepting and decoding messages.  Any stories you would like to share?

Unfortunately my family was on the other side of the war back then. I live in the USA now, but my father was a high ranking German official. We lived in Norway, and he was some kind of Colonel in the SS. I don't think he was a prison camp guard or he did any real terrible stuff, but at home we always wrote to him together. A big difference between the Germans and the Allies is that the Allies, everyone bands together and works for the war effort. In our case, the powerful were allowed to not do anything. Maybe that's why our side lost!
