Recently we got a very touching message from a customer, who came to us to buy some black bread for her old mother. The mother suddenly said that Russian bread was delicious after reading about our online shop in a local newspaper. It turned out Russian soldiers shared their bread with her on their way to the Korean War a long time ago.
This took place in 1950-1953 in Fushun province when the mother was a child. She said the Russians settled down on a small hill, picked some scrap metal and build a stove for cooking their bread.
According to the daughter, this was a part of the conversation:
Mom: ”The Red Army didn’t take neither a needle nor a piece of thread from us. They just made use of scrap metal to make their stoves and bake their bread. They could bear hardships and that’s why they always won the wars.”
Daughter: ”You must have asked them for the bread.”
Mom: ”No, they shared their bread with us.”
That reminds us of how precious the peaceful life is and that we have a lot to be thankful for. It is great to know the friendship between our nations has a long history. And it’s important to get together sometimes and share good food.
