"What sins could you have committed in your life", I asked, "slaving from morning to night in Boiberke merely for a dry piece of bread? This you call sinning"?

Twenty five years ago he had lost his leg in battle, and protested and cried : "Where is my leg ? Give me back my leg and let me go home !" But when the doctors failed to give him back his leg, something beyong their power, and the High Command awarded him the Cross of Courage, sending him home a cripple, he some-how reconciled himself to his fate ...
