My research area is oral history, that is, narrated histroy. So I want to present one of my most valuable interviews in my presentation. On August 16, 2017, I made an interview with István Sin, Orosháza who celebrated his 100th birthday that year. I asked him to recall the years of the Second World War, the experience of the front and the period of captivity. István Sin and his companions were hauled in May 1943and launched to the eastern front. At Kalinkavichy, the Soviet air strikewas already under way. He remembers: „We escaped into a bunker that protected us at least from the crackers, but all the windows in the station broke and the doors were cut off by the air pressure. The bomb crashed in 40 meters, hitting a huge hole, cutting cows in the barn. After the air strike until midnight every night, the entire unit went out into the woods because we were afraid of repeating the attacks.” He fell into Russian captivity in November 1944, and the survivors were sent home in August 1948. He told me how he felt when he recognised his childhood friend in walking line, as they were driven to to the detention center, what the daily „menu” in Russian captivity was, how a disinfection took place, and the hauling in … „In the wagon the toilet was in one corner. We did our job there. The days passed and we didn’t know where they were taking us. We only saw the sun when they opened the door for something.” We can learn about the Second World War memories and everyday life in István Sin’s narrative more than 70 years later.
