Translation of Elisabeth Sch's account of the events at Jägerstraße 9 and 5, Kassel.
'We went into the cellar, my husband, our three children and I... All the people from the building were down there with us. We heard hit after hit. We thought everything was going to fall down on us... We went through the breakthrough to number 7 and then went on to number 5 because that was a public shelter. So we stood there for a while and then went into this corner... and when the lights went out, my husband said I should sit down with our youngest. He kept moving about and looked for a way to save us. At the end, when he couldn’t go on, he said: “Come on, let’s lie down over there, it’s no use.” ... So we lay down on an air raid bed, my husband, the little girl and I... I don’t know anything after that. I woke up on Saturday, in Jägerstraße where we were lying in the street.'
