"...The villages were reduced to a wasteland. All the fruit had been eaten while it was still green and the gardens had all become completely overgrown with weeds. In the deathly silence nothing at all could be heard, neither the chirping of sparrows, the 
croaking of cows, nor the barking of dogs since all of these living creatures had long since been eaten up. Those people who still had enough strength to move, wandered around in search of any roots or the seed of weeds they could find so that they could, at least, boil these for their dying children, wailing and begging for something to eat..."
