One thought on “Unit 5 – War Heroes

  1. What an awful period for the civilians , war is horrible , I can’t help wondering how people could live in such bad conditions. I don’t think I could be able to live in those situations , no food, always having the fear of losing your family , I have lots respect for the people who choose to stay and who don’t give up their land , houses , countries … it’s very courageous .
