The amazing machine is finished. I'll have to try it first. I step in. I pull the lever, where will I go? Suddenly, I'm in a field. A man is standing on the road, I ask him where I am. ‘In Austria,’ he says, ‘near Braunau.’ Then a shrieking scream comes. Dashing down, I see boys crowded around an enormous river. I see a boy under the water. I grab him. I pull him out. He is not breathing! Then the boy coughs out water. He thanks me!
‘What's your name boy?’
‘Adolf, Adolf Hitler.’
What have I done?…
