French, Russian, Danes,
English, Americans & all
giving forth in joy
in his own way & language
Mobs went thru fences & into
fields for potatoes - some went
to near by farmhouses & took
live stock - everything from rabbits
to sheep
Russian prisoners are to leave this
morning
When will the yanks come?
What a day! Apr. 23, 1945 has
been one of the most eventful
& unusual days in my life
& I will never forget it!  Last
night I went to sleep hungry
&  downhearted - tonight I
will sleep with a full
stomach. Not only am I
full but I've had fried eggs
- actual frush eggs - something
that I haven't even seen
for months.  The day
started out unusual with
the absence of the Germans
