What would you do if you were a woman and you had to do a manĘs job because all the men were away at war? Well, my great grandmother had to do something. She was about 30 years old when the war started. She had to work in a navy defense plant as a secretary. Many supply lists had to go through her to be shipped over seas.
Half way across the country, in Yugoslavia, my great uncle Voyjko was having a rough life. Everyday his town would be bombed and shelled. Everything was rationed. He remembers only having bread for dinner. To make matters worse his brother had been captured and sister had been dead.
This war made many people's lives hard, no matter where they were in the world!
