      Hello Bernard85,
      Thank you very much for your warm messages, I appreciate them. I'm very glad that none of your family were hurt in the bombing. It still must have been horrible- losing all your things. I cannot imagine how that must have felt.

      That's very interesting. I never thought of that; people were just glad to survive!

      It's very nice talking to you too. I'm very lucky hearing from someone who went through it all.

      Regards,

      Chris
