This story is not exactly a happy one, but will probably be a good story. This is a story about the Percivaldi family's experience during the Holocaust, their escape, and their leaving the country to flee from the Nazis.

Characters:

Matteo Percivaldi

Marianna Percivaldi

Giovanni Percivaldi

Susanna Percivaldi

Davide Percivaldi

The story takes place in a small town located in the centre of Italy, in the city of Aventezzo in late 1943. The Percivaldis are a rather popular family among the Nazis, though the Percivaldis, minus Marianna, are Jewish. And so, Matteo, Giovanni, Susanna and Davide are sent to a concentration camp – the same concentration camp that Marianna demands to be a prisoner of.

This story is about to begin when I complete chapter one, and the language is a combination of Italian and English. I tried to make it obvious at what the meaning of the statement is, but if you still do not understand, I will include the translations below. They follow the order that they appear in the chapter. The Italian words will appear in italics, and so will the translations.
