Hi Hycel! I hope you are doing fine.

Thank god forced mortability in europe has significantly decreased since then.

Let all of us hope it stays like this. Even if the "bill" is not balanced.

It's amazing how many people died in little known events during the war. 

My relatives live in Pforzheim, Germany. On February 23, 1945 a Lancaster raid on that town killed 17,600 people!

Can you imagine how much news coverage a catastrophe of that order would get today? Yet it is basically an unknown event. 

It' hard to wrap your head around the casualty counts of WW2.
