5. Immediately after the war , what life was like in Romania ?
I was upset from a great drought came up in 1955. In 1946 , 1946 was famine , it was not
there , was destroyed everything in Braila was nothing , no shop , in Braila or Galati ,
nothing, everything was down. Something, clothing, anything. After the war it was very
hard . In the 50s it was better , but still with poverty. In 50 I was born my daughter. Not
found beds , not to the time that was nothing there . Passed as I could. We received three
thousand in cooperative cargo queuing . That was in those days . I worked on the yard. (
How did you manage to have a normal life after the war, in the years 1950/1960 ? ) . After
the war came collectivization , and we took all the wealth we have and then I worked on
collectively. It took us and the earth was hard after the war. We struggle it took all his
wealth . It was hard but after his collective sweetened makes us clots were taking people
homes , drew people from their homes on fields leads them to make their homes . Very
hard it was after the war. Then they went back to their homes , it was life then: very heavy.
And that's the thing . And done from home after the Russians left the country, his life
sweetened Russians because they took everything and they went in their country , they
carry them. In Romania Russians stay there long . Russians have installed here but then
never came . Romania took over . They stood for many years but can not remember . But ,
you say, who knows how it would have been here say they stayed in our country.
