Interview Length: 2:02
INTERVIEW TRANSCRIPT: That part I don't know. In fact, funny thing, you know. Even during war, it's human. Because I remember one motorcycle, a German motorcycle was going across this way and they had their machine gun backing him up, shooting against us. So I grabbed a rifle, all us took aim. But I took a good aim. First time we miss, but I took a good aim. And I can hear the motorcycle go and then it stopped. And then about fifteen minutes later, the German people ran away. And this guy only left behind, so I was curious. I went across and saw his leg was stuck between the motorcycle fork thing like this. And he was backwards and his eyes were closed, and his head all shaved from the ground because the bicycle dragged on, you know, and he was dead. And then so, when I looked at that, I said, gee, you know, he must have parents. You cannot hate the guy. He must have brothers or sisters somehow. So I feel kind of pitiful. I felt bad that I was one of them to find a rifle to kill the guy. But that's why human being is strange sometimes even how much you hate that guy. But, when you sit down and think about it, see, they’re humans just like us. They have feelings, they have loved ones. That's why when I look at that guy, I couldn't do anything because he's already dead. Motorcycle this way, and his head all shaved off, you know, all on the ground, and just like that. That's why, war is such a, I don't know, so strange, you know, they killing each other. But actually, they don't want to really kill you. But you have to defend yourself. You either shoot, or they shoot you. But it's strange, very strange feeling inside me.
