Austria at War
The memories of a young Austrian woman who survived World War Two and her country's annexation by Nazi Germany, and how even after the war Austrians almost starved
In October 1945, Austria got its first provisional government since its annexation by Nazi Germany a year before the Second World War. Wilfriede Iwaniuk was 14 when Hitler marched into Vienna; she tells Louise Hidalgo about the harshness of the war years and how, after the war too, there was no food and few jobs.
