A Life That Could Have Been
1944. A year that is one of the most remembered years of American, German, and Jewish history. The story of Adolf Hitler: a mad tyrant that enjoyed destroying and ruining the lives of millions of people. Lives were lost in the war, attacks, and murders. But several other lives were shattered by World War II, not just the ones deliberately killed and lost by its wake. The stories of romance. The stories of the star-crossed. Stories ripped apart by war and the conflict of choosing sides. This is the ( very short) story of Felix Alexander.
Felix was a nineteen year old teenager. He was tall, with sleek black hair and a decent color of tan skin. His eyes turned from hazel to brown from time to time. Most of all, Felix had just become a Nazi. He lost his family in World War I, and really never knew his parents. His girlfriend, Teresa, had recently dumped him. He was left stranded and alone, and had no other choice; he had to recruit himself into Adolf Hitler’s army. It was the only good pay around the time that Felix could find. He didn’t really know the intentions of his new leader, Hitler. At the time, Felix was not a well-informed man. All he knew, was that he would be hired to kill Jews. He knew the idea seemed insane, but with no family and money, what other choice did he have? Suddenly his life comes to a halt when he meets Andrea Karolin, a Jewish woman that had gone into hiding from the Nazis with her family. He immediately falls for the girl, not knowing what to do with himself. He loves Andrea, but she’s a Jew and he’s a Nazi. He’s supposed to kill her, but he can’t. How can they ever be together?
