Sara Kiden's story

I lost my dad when I was 7 years old. I remember him working in a carpentry workshop. Dad also worked in a farm garden. He was a generous man and helped everyone. But there was so much fighting, sadness, resentment and unhappiness around us. One day, dad was attacked and he was beaten with cutlers and an axe. He managed to get to the hospital but he did not survive.

Mum was left alone with seven of us children to look after without help from anybody. It was really bad while I was growing up. This is just the summary of my life.
