Woman, what’s your name? – I don’t know.

Where were you born, where do you come from? – I don’t know.

Why did you dig a hole in the ground? – I don’t know.

How long have you been hiding here? – I don’t know.

Don’t you know we will do you no harm? – I don’t know.

Whose side are you on? – I don’t know.

There’s a war on, you must choose. – I don’t know.

Does your village still exist? – I don’t know.

Are these your children? – Yes.
