lost my dad on September 7th, 1940, which was the first day the Germans sent bombs on my homeland. Now I am all that's left of the life that my mother knew before. We got reports that our neighborhood was all crippled and burnt. Danis Williams September 8th, 1940 Yesterday there was a loud ruckus and I wasn't sure as to what was happening until mom and dad were telling me to pack some belongings and that we were going to the tubes because the Germans started attacking us. I was so scared I didn’t know what to do. I hope my home is okay and that this is all over soon because I want to go play with my friends and finish my drawing in school. Now I am staying with my family in the tube which is usually used as the subway and I would go to the nearby stop whenever we went to see grandma and grandpa up north. I hope they are okay too. I don’t like the little rats that live here and all of the smells from everyone being stuffed in here. I really can’t wait for this to end. Tommy Cook

October 15th, 1940 I was one of those quite days so I was on my way to the printing shop when suddenly heard the sirens and when I looked up the Germans were above us. I tried to cycle as fast as possible to the nearest shelter but the last thing I remember was seeing an elderly woman in the middle of the street being on fire. The next recollection I had was being taken to the St. Giles Hospital where I saw other civilians; people life me; with terrible wounds. I even saw children, women, and elderly. I can’t believe that these bombings are so inhuman and are not only targeting the areas with the most technological dependence from the nation but also the most populated areas with civilians.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
