    Importance of Stalingrad Stretching for 50km (30 miles) along the banks for the Volga River, Stalingrad was a large industrial city producing armaments and tractors and was an important prize in itself for the invading German army. Both Hitler and Mussolini felt that Stalingrad was important for two reasons. Firstly, the city was an important base on the transportation route provided by the Volga River between the Caspian Sea and northern Russia as mentioned before. Secondly, capturing it would secure the western flank of the Germany armies as they advanced into the oil-rich city of Baku by cutting the fuel from Stalin's war machine.

    My grandparents from my father's side were established Germany in Bayern (Bavaria) where they were in commerce. During the upheaval of the Weimar Republic the family lost all their savings and wealth and decided to emigrate to Brazil, where they'd arrived in poverty level.

    many and most in Russia. "Descendants of the relatives are still in Russia but contact has been lost. So my side of the family don't know much details of what happened." said Roberto (my dad). The significance to this today is that this has impacted a lot on the new Jew generation. Many families lost contact from their families just like my dad's side of the family don't know who else is part of our family. This event has also kept a scar to many Jews. My Aunt (dad's older sister) doesn't like Germans because to what had happened during the War.

    A picture of the immigrants that arrived with the knowledge about their coming to Brazil was going to be temporary. But this did not weaken their Jewish identity. They continued with their Jewish tradition and values.

    My mom also had a difficult childhood in Java, Indonesia living mostly in poverty. Her father passed away shortly after the World War 2 where he was imprisoned in a concentration camp by the Japanese. He was playing football on the field when she was young and then neighbors reported that they saw Japanese solders taking him away. She was raised with great difficulty by her fantastic mother (my grandmother) who raised also all her sisters. After he was returned after the war, he died a few months later because of how weak he was due to how he was treated in the war. "My dad died when I was 11 years old because he was weak. After his death we had trouble in keeping out family financially stabled. If he wasn't kidnapped by the Japanese soldiers, we could have lived a longer life." said Ismi (my mom)
    The significance to why the Japanese kidnapped my grandfather when he was a childtoday is that this has caused a big changed to Indonesia because they needed more soldiersit has finally managed to fightgain independence and also many families like my mom had lost a family member in an early age of her life. I heard that Indonesians doesn't like Japanese people due to what the Japanese had done to Indonesians during the war with Japan.war.
