Never Again.

I believe in the sun, even when I do not see it.

I believe in love, even when I do not feel it.

I believe in God, even when He is silent.


70 years ago the Holocaust ended.

The greatest genocide the world has seen since ancient times.

But have we remembered?

*

The coarse cloth itches my body as I scratch away the contamination.

Around me, my fellows discard their clothing, creating an accumulation

In the centre of the room.

They assure us, in the Nazi way:

“You will be having a shower, to clean yourselves” they say.

Lies.

I can do nothing but comply, fearful for my life,

My nakedness reflected in everything I feel in my strife.

The door closes.

Darkness envelopes the room

I grab a hand, my heart pounding, sensing the doom

I choke.

And then I’m gone.


In the memory and honour of the 72 million souls who departed from this world at the hands of the Nazis.
