Italian term or phrase:uscire dal mondo (see context)
So che non volevi, ma il parroco mi ha detto che le autorità dovevano saperlo, di quella volta che volevi uscire dal mondo…”
(letter from a mother sent to her son during World War II)
I am looking for a way of saying "uscire dal mondo" which is suitable for that era. Could I translate it literally? I don't want to use "commit suicide".
