Indian author Avijeet Das wrote, "We need four things to survive life: bread, water, oxygen and dreams!" Bread has been the staple food in many Western cultures for thousands of years. We will look at the substance and memory of bread during war. When depriving people of bread becomes a weapon, procuring bread means survival, and dreaming of bread becomes a means of resistance.
