Thanks girls! The first half of the twentieth century, and particularly the time span between 1914 and 1945 is ripe with horror for the world. When i first studied in school i remerber i was amazed at how humankind managed to survive, and to make matters more vivid we all know/knew people that live on those times. My great grandfather was part of the detachment Portugal sent to Marroco and he never came back. We have no idea what happened to him, if he died or decided to stay there for good or if he deserted. He left his pregnant wife and he never met his daughter. My great grandmother had to raise my grandmother all alone.
