Barbara Bell (b. UK, 1921), blinded during the Second World War (WWII). "I was sitting on the train to London when I heard the German planes coming. Everybody wanted to run but it was not possible because the train was still moving. We got hit. 30 passengers died and I became blind. After the war, I got a diploma in physiotherapy. I kept that occupation for 34 years. I have been retired for a long time now and I enjoy taking walks by the sea and going shopping in Brighton. If I could have my eyes back, I would like to see landscapes and paintings."
