Thirties Thursday

72 years ago today, this was the headline.

And on September 3....


  1. Elspeth - A truly monumental day.... So frightening, I'm sure, for those who were there. I get chills just from the reports of the day...

  2. Can you imagine the family sat round the radio listening to this? The fear that must have gone through those that were old enough to understand must have been awful.

  3. Margot; There was a time a few years ago, when a radio station replayed this broadcast. It was eerie (to say the least) to actually hear it coming out of my radio.

    Sarah; Indeed. Remember too, that for many listening this was the second war in their lifetime. That's a recurring theme for several characters in my book. And THANKS, Sarah! (you know why!)

  4. Especially significant, since my mother's family had recently left Danzig for the US. Otherwise, I might not be here.

    Romance with a Twist--of Mystery

  5. Terry; I'm glad her family got out in time. They were luckier than most.
