雅思口语准备:英列兵坟墓成景点 只因叫哈利波特

发表时间:2011/1/11字号:T|T
      According to the Metro.Co.uk on November 29, the grave of Private Harry Potter in Israel has become one of Israel's top tourist attractions thanks to the fact he shares his name with the world's most famous wizard.
  The real Harry Potter left his family's home in Kidderminster to join the army in Birmingham in 1938. And he died in Israel in 1939 during an uprising.
  Ken Potter, 77, was just six years old when his elder brother was ambushed and killed.
  "Harry has never left our thoughts," said the former greengrocer, from Kidderminster, "I remember a policeman came to our door to give mum and dad the news. They were very upset but we didn't really know what was happening. We were just young kids and all I was bothered about at that time was going and playing. "
  But despite his late brother and the boy wizard sharing the same name, Ken admits he has never watched the films.
  And he said, "It was my sister's son who first found out about the interest in his grave about three years ago while on the internet. We couldn't believe people visit his grave, but apparently they come from miles around to have their photo taken next to it."
  据英国《地铁报》网站11月29日报道,列兵哈利•波特在以色列的墓地成为当地一个著名的旅游景点,这是因为他和世界上著名的魔法师同名。
  1938年,哈利•波特离开位于基德明斯特的家中,来到英国伯明翰,参了军。他是在1939年以列色战争中死亡的。
  波特的弟弟肯•波特现年77岁,当年波特遭伏击身亡时他只有六岁。
  曾经是位蔬菜水果商的肯•波特如今还住在基德明斯特,他说:"哈利从来没有离开过我们。我记得,一名警察到我们家中,告诉妈妈和爸爸这个消息。他们非常悲伤,而我们不知道发生何事。那个时候我们都是小孩子,我所关心的仅是跑来跑去玩耍"。
  尽管去世的哥哥与红遍全球的魔法师"哈利•波特"同名,但肯•波特却从未看过 "哈利•波特"系列电影。
  "我姐姐的儿子3年前首先在网上发现人们对哈利的坟墓发生兴趣。我们无法相信人们参观他的坟墓,不过显而易见,他们从数公里外过去,站在墓旁拍照",这位老人说。
