Dear Kitty …

20th March 1939

Dear Kitty,
What tragic news I have for you today…Hundreds upon hundreds of my own people are being taken to the worst place possible!I can’t bare thinking about what could happen to us , all of us.
However hard I try I just can’t get it out of my head ,my friends , my family,ME! I know my feelings really don’t matter though but I can’t help feeling lonley. Despite these desolate times one ray of comfort to me: my friend Lia Lessa has come into hiding with me. Unfortunatley her mother and father have been taken to that place. I can’t even bare to say the word it frightens me so much.She has told me how she managed to squeeze into the tiniest space ever and it was a miricle they didn’t find her.I could feel her fear crawling over my skin like spiders.Disgracefuly she told me how her mother and father got dragged away and thrown into a cattle cart.She described the horrible people as almost like demons snatching away the precious and beloved. The intensity of which makes me able to almost feel her unbearable pain and suffering.I would hate to be her.Sadly for I fear the loss of our friendship, but hopefully a safe alternative for her, I have found out that she is going to Britain to be adopted.I feel overjoyed for her but almost feel like that should be me as well, but could I ever handle being away from my parents?She also told me how this man has helped her through this tough time , his name is Nicholas Winton. He is like an avenging angel, a life saver; how could she ever manage without him. As I sit here writing this I am shivering. We have already had ‘visitors’ and hope they won’t come back again.For now I sit here silently thinking about the horrible fate that could awiat me…

Your friend
Eleanor xx

    Hi Ellie. I thought this piece of work was really good! You’ve set it out like Anne Frank’s diary which is a really good idea!!

    Wow , I can see you have used ideas from Anne Franks diary because she wrote, ‘Dear Kitty’. You’ve wrote a fantastic piece of work.
