The first few months of occupation brings uncomfortable but not unbearable change. The presence of German troops unsettles the family, as does the tone of superiority, which soldiers take when they come to buy watches. The shop does well in the first year of war with all the commotion of soldiers and no new merchandise. Additional measures include the introduction of a 10:00 P.M. curfew, identity cards which had to be shown at any time, and the ration system.
