Rollcall Officer- "Lida you will be assigned a new occupation at the factory."
Lida and Larissa are sisters and are separated by a Nazi invasion and Lida is taken into a cattle car packed with strangers her peer. Larissa is taken to a different Nazi location, both hoping to reunite. Lida meets Zenia, Luka, and other backround characters.
"Put the gun down, don't even bother to attempt to kill me."
Once in a Nazi slavery camp, Lida was assigned to do laundry and sewing. This was by far the easiest job to do, Lida got lucky. While her other friends in her Barracks (Barracks 7) got a factory job. Lida was catholic and has a Crucifix that she gave to Zenia because she was Jewish and the Nazis hated the Jews. The factory was then bombed and three of her barracks mates has died and been replaced by Natalia and two other girls.
"You there you're free, now go to Astrid or the nurse!"
Lida has been removed from the sewing occupation and has been moved to a bomb factory. Lida's assignment was to put gunpowder in the bomb and has sabotaged many bombs. A few weeks in the factory exploded and many died and Lida and her friends had a mere chance to survive the catastrophe.
"Dear Lida, I hope I have finally found you. I think I saw you during the war. Was that you with the OST badge outside the burning factory? I wanted to run to you but they wouldn't let me. Please tell me I have found you. I have been searching nearly a year, writing the Red Cross, praying for news that you survived the war. I live in Canada now with my adoptive parents, Marusia and Ivan Kravchuk. They call me Nadia. That is a long story, but please know that I am safe and I am loved and I miss you so much. I have so much to tell you, dear Lida. And questions to ask. But there is one thing I would like to ask you now: would you like to immigrate to Canada? Marusia and Ivan will sponser you. Please write back to me at this address. I will pray everyday for a letter. I miss you and I love you. Larissa"
Juli, works in the hospital and has treated all of the people harmed by the explosion and mostly cared for Lida. At late midnight Juli took a gun and shot the rollcall officer dead and she also got killed. Lida was taken to a different camp because her old one was in shatters by the Allies bombing it. She now had to make bombs again.
