It was not too "Planmaessig" in Czernowitz.....until my mother grabbed hold
of me and pulled me inside I watched Germans frantically getting away, and
shortly thereafter a Russian tank coming around the corner. Cornel

Apropos shortening the front line - I wonder how many of you recall the
frequent newspapaer headings in 1943 and thud of 1944 - "Rostov planmaessig
geraeumt:", "Dnjepropetrovsk planmaessig geraeumt", . Rostov planmaessig
graeumt", Kharkov planmaaessig geraeumt" etc. etc. etc. How enlightening
these headings were for us in Czernowitz in those last 1.33 years of
Romanian occupation.....,. Yes, we appreciated this excellent Plan!
I suppose those West from us were happy to read on April 1944 - Czernowitz
planmaessig geraeumt...
