Four World War II Stories Yeut-Ming, Grandma Lived in Guangzhou at the Beginning of the War. Her father worked for the American Consulate, which helped them to move away. When the Japanese conquered Guangzhou, their family moved to Guilin. After moving to Guilin, she stayed there for 2 years. However, when the Japanese moved further inland, they moved to Chongqing. She got to all these places by freight train, which the American consulate provided. Some people were so desperate to leave, they lay down on the roof of the train. Each American Consulate employee got $8 US. In Guangzhou, She saw soldiers.
As well, people got killed in the bombings People also died of hunger. People fought for food. When people couldn't get enough food, they drowned themselves. This was commonly used for food. When troops came, they were forced to hide. They would hide in the attic, in the church or Buddhist temples. As well, when the siren sounds for bomb raids, they hid in the cave. Money is very important as the price for food and other goods was very high. Went to school in different places Had to make lots of new friends, as she moved often However, there were other service employees, so they were friends with each other. Further inland, the soil was less fertile, thus the lives were harder. She saw people starve to death. Chi Sun, Grandpa Was in HK at the beginning of the war Very Prosperous here.
