This week my teaser is from Life and Fate by Vasily Grossman page 231:
Nearly everyone believed that good would triumph, that honest men, who hadn't hesitated to sacrifice their lives, would be able to build a good and just life. This faith was all the more touching in that these men thought that they themselves would be unlikely to survive until the end of the war; indeed, they felt astonished each evening to have survived one more day.
It's Tuesday, Where Are You? is hosted by an adventure in reading.
I'm in Russia; it's 1942 and I'm alternately in a German concentration camp, a Russian labour camp, Kazan, Stalingrad, on a cattle car bound for the gas chamber and a tank corps in the Urals. Life is not easy for any of us.
