Dachau

Rating: 5.0

It wasn't just a concentration camp
designed to commit murder.
It was much much, more.
It deprived inmates of their dignity.
Making fun of their misery.
And that, is the cruelest of hurt of all.

We must learn everyday to provide everyone with dignified treatment, to show kindness as opposed to meanness or brutality. thanks for your poem, Jerry. Uriah

The Geneva Convention was convened to prevent not only soldiers, but citizens from suffering this indignation during war or peacetime...sadly, it still continues. Coach

I was stationed in Germany in 1978, we drove by, and you could still smell death
