Transport out of Lübberstedt

They didn't tell us where they taking us, nothing. But they put us again on the--those trains and we were going and they didn't give us nothing eat for days, nothing. And we were going with the trains. But bombs were coming, English uh, army pilots. They didn't know who. They connected us with ammunition uh, trains that uh, whoever is bombing us they should think that it's ammunition. They didn't know that uh, people are there. So eighty of us were killed that time. Some were without legs--the legs were torn off. And we were all running on the fields and we were laying there. The bombs were, were falling and we were going, walking for days without food, without nothing. Finally we came to a big pile of uh, beets and we opened the beets. The Germans were pushing us and uh, and uh, with the guns and uh, but we didn't care. It was so bad already, everybody was skin and bone and we knew that we won't survive. And we ate the beets and everybody got sick. So we were walking and walking and walking. Finally we came to a town uh, yeah, it was--the name was ???. It was by the Danish. Probably ??? because it was a German uh, town. It was a big town. It was already almost end of the war. We walked, we were hungry. They didn't give us eat nothing.
