We've been tagged !!!

Monica from http://pipberryprims.blogspot.com/ has tagged US! We raced over to her site to see what it was all about... Now apparently for this we have to grab the book nearest to me, Nette as it turns out...go to page 28 and copy out the third paragraph. So here it is, from "Prisoners of the East" By Allana Corbin. I have read it before, however Mum gave me a copy just last weekend...
Along a road not far from our house was a throng of people making their way to a large parade ground almost a block away. I had no idea what was happening, but felt pleased to have such a good seat for the show, whatever it was to be. Before long our excitement was shattered as I noticed several prisoners being dragged along. They were bound by the hands and had been severely beaten. People whom I guessed to be their relatives grabbed at the guards, begging and pleading for their release. In stunned silence, my sister and I watched as the men were forced tot he ground in the centre of the complex. A large figure dressed in black stepped forwards and put a loose cloth bag over the head of each prisoner. The crowd gathered around them, and the cheering intensified. One by one, the men were hauled to their feet and paraded before the crowd then forced to kennel on the grey asphalt. Without hesitation, the man in black raised his gun and shot each one in the back of the head. I couldn't move, and as each shot rang out I felt its resonating blow penetrate right through me. I was shaking and frozen with fear until the chilling scene came to an end.
WOW pretty intense book. As you might have guessed it is a true story from WW2.
