by Dr. Hildegard Edge & Ms. Hildegard Gartman
Our connection to the outside world is ensured by a direct line to the Main Airraid Warning Headquarters in Posnan. Like the other watchtowers scattered across the new German Gau on both sides of the Warta Rivera, our mission is to observe the skies, report airplanes and airplane sounds. For half a year we have carried these orders out faithfully. That's over. Alert and fearful, we now stand at our post on the last day of the year nineteen hundred forty-four. Gazing at the heavens has become incidental. A disaster from the air? Absurd. We know very well that the danger is approaching across the wide plain which stretches eastward at our feet, that it threatens to overrun us. Anxiously, we stare at the unite landscape, day after day, night after night, until our eyes are swimming, until we are snowblind.
