in je ogen waait de wind
it's such an incredible story and you talk about it so very casual but to me that gas chamber looks terrifying and i would weep every night. i am positively surprised though that they helped you out with shelters and a place in a housing associating eventually, i guess in some regards the uk is not the neoliberal hell i always imagine it to be?same as anyone else
after an 8 month stint in the bin they let her out and gave her a flat in islington
dunno really, if they did, they gave no sign of it. i remember after the first night in the basement thinking f*** i'm probably covered in dust and dirt after that. but it never bothered me again after that.
i rang a number, got picked up and taken to a church shelter. after 6 weeks of sleeping in there i was put into a hostel, which was nice, just like student halls really, then after 2 months in there i got a place in a housing association
