|My dowry. All cleaned, painted, and restored.
Old shells are deactivated. This place looks a bit like workshop
of medieval alchemists. My quest to find an SS ring seems as
impossible as theirs, seeking to find gold within base metal.
They didn't find what they were looking for, but instead they
discovered many of natures laws, and along the way invented
gunpowder, china, and useful medicines. I have found many
interesting things too and I don't regret my endeavour. After
all, in a way we are all alchemists, each hoping to find our own
'gold' somewhere in life.
Stuff mostly from war trenches, except for a couple of things
of home storage. I traded them from old people, who kept relics
from time of German occupation.
Occupation of Kiev lasted two years and two month. It began
in September 1941. The same days when Soviet army have been
trapped in a marsh German army began occupying Kiev. Germans
found town in chaos.
On central market they saw how some people were selling human
meat. Germans caught the human flesh sellers and strung up the
enterprising gentlemen right on a spot. They left them for
people to see that new authority call for order.
