Holocaust Poem by Barbara Sonek

Holocaust

Rating: 5.0


We played, we laughed
we were loved.
We were ripped from the arms of our
parents and thrown into the fire.
We were nothing more than children.
We had a future. We were going to be lawyers, rabbis, wives, teachers, mothers. We had dreams, then we had no hope. We were taken away in the dead of night like cattle in cars, no air to breathe smothering, crying, starving, dying. Separated from the world to be no more. From the ashes, hear our plea. This atrocity to mankind can not happen again. Remember us, for we were the children whose dreams and lives were stolen away.

Beautiful and sad poem. People really don't understand the real harshness of the never-to-be-forgotten Holocaust.

this poem only partially describes the pain and terror that the nazis caused. Nazis are evil beings that have no sympathy.
