Self acceptance is a challenge but it is such an important part of self care -@hans_mhrecovery 💗
Self love and acceptance is something I'm working really hard on right now and I challenge all of you to do the same. Let's all be turtles 💗
Len and his buddy Paul were being transferred to Oflag 64, a camp for only Officers in Szubin, Poland. One night during the trip, after the guards were asleep, they decided to escape.. They were able to to get away unseen, and began walking toward Switzerland. They walked all night, and had the border in their sights when a small group of Italian initially caught them :( Back on the train box car through Austria to Poland. They arrived at the camp gate, and his buddy Joe Seringer described what happened next: "One glorious day that August, a lone figure stood at our prison gate. Low and behold, the dead had arisen! Our buddy Len Feldman walked into camp. He hadn't died when he was shot, but was sent to an Italian hospital and after four operations, finally recovered. The bullet had pierced his left nipple and came out his back with a huge opening. How he survived with a bullet practically touching his heart was indeed a miracle! Len to this day is my great friend and lives in Pittsburgh. He has come to many family events. We still talk about our trips together to London. Len, since he spoke perfect German, became part of the Security group of our camp." The only picture I have of him at the camp itself, taken in front of the barracks, some of which are still there. I stood in that camp the other day trying to wrap my head around the life of a Kreigy (what the Germans called the prisoners), it was an emotional moment.
More to come about camp life at Oflag 64! #oflag64#wwii#pow#backfromthedead#surviving#poland#powcamp#luckytobealive#kreigy#escape#walkingdead#alive#imprisoned#americansoldier#patriot#hisstory
