His Memory Lasts Forever
How could he forget the horrific things that happened in his life? This time in his life was something so big. He was taken away from his mother and sister. It would be hard for someone to forget something like that. No matter how hard he tries to block it out it would still be in his mind. He might be able to forget some things at certain times but being able to block it all out would be almost impossible. If we were his age going through this watching people die almost every day how could you ever forget that? In his mind everything is so vivid, everything is there and he cant forget it. So many different things happened when he was there. He seen people die, he barely got to eat, hardly any clothes on his back, was treated badly, and so many more things. Even though he was only fourteen at the time the things in his mind will be unforgettable. If something like that was to happen in our lives we would never forget it. How could you?
The survivors should tell their stories to tell people what happened during that time and tell the people what happened to them. They could tell the people their experience during that time and if it was going on at the time. It's always interesting to hear from a person who survived other than stories from people who weren't there.
