DescriptionThe account that the gentleman gives, what happened when the war began, and what the people did too, what the gentleman says, is that some men came to say that they did not want rich people, but that everything would be equal, the gentleman said. But there were also those who "took care” of us, he said for the soldiers who also arrived in the town and ordered each group by platoon, but the people were also forced. There was no one left, but from small to big they wrote their names on the list and went to patrol. That's when the war began in our midst.
