What was your family doing during WWII?

Asked by Arisztid (7094 points ) December 28th, 2009

If you had ancestors who served in the military, what did they do, what ranks were they, and the like in WWII? If they were not in the military, what were they up to, how did WWII affect their lives? My family were (and obviously still are) Rromani Gypsies. That pretty much explains what they were doing.

I would love to hear stories from both Allied and Axis forces and nations.

It is my personal belief that stories like this are often not heeded and that this actually leaves quite a deficit in history.
