Week 35 1915
From the beginning until the end
Three months ago the war began. There is a difficult time getting started, which is far from over.
On 28 June 1914 the heir to the throne of Austria was killed. He was called Franz Ferdinand. His wife was also killed. They were both killed in Sarajevo, capital of Bosnia. Austria demanded that the Austrian police do an investigation in Serbia about the murder. But Serbia disagreed completely. Therefore Serbia refused the investigation.
This makes Austria on 28 June 1914 declared war on Serbia. Within a few days most countries in Europe were involved in this war. Austria received support from Germany. Serbia had help from Russia, France, England and Belgium. Later, Serbia got help also from Italy and the United States.
The First World War was really begun.
It is now three months since the war began and the conditions are already very bad. The end is not there yet. Let's hope it's soon over and that there doesn’t fall too many victims.
Letter from the reader
Dear readers of the daily update,
Monday 24th Augustus, we, from the children organisation, organize a day for children. The meaning of it is to let the children forget about the war for one day. That day we will go play hide and seek, painting and lots of other fun games. Just for one day don’t let them work in the fabric or bring newspapers around. Give your older children a day free. We will babysit your children. Every boy and girl between 0 and 16 is welcome. It’s at the local church from St. Omer. Please consider it!
