I remember coming home from a dance with my sister, two German officers approached us and one of them pointed to his watch telling us it was 10 o'clock curfew time.I said no it was five minutes to ten and he said no its ten o'clock!
We felt intimidated and were frightened, the soldiers told us to go so we ran all the way home which was not easy because we were wearing "Sabots" (shoes similar to clogs).
