A biography of Ivan Stockenburg.

Extracts from this document...


My Story Mr Parker A biography of Ivan Stockenburg. It was when I was eight years old it happened. Life was better before the Germans invaded. I had a good family and I was being well educated at school. My mom and dad were at home when a bomb landed in the middle of the street. Some of the houses near the explosion caught on fire. Suddenly panic spread across the street, then across the city and then across the country. Ten minutes later my parents died of severe burns.
