May this cold wind never blow again
The past is shining through generations
She escaped, he did not
Another so-called "unworthy of life"
Survivor of the Final Solution
Looking at the victims’ shadows engraved in stone
A never-ending last cry for the gone
Itinerary in the darkness
Crushed, packed and terrified
Thuds and cold. Bleeding hands. Obscure feeling of death
The opening of train doors and shattered hopes
The human tragedy at its worst
Holocaust denial, blinded by ashes falling
Nostalgic of the T-4. Murderers of the truth
Waiting for another chance. Hate-mongers, let them burn
"Chosen people" watch your back
From the darkness of the past
Persecution from first to last
It takes generations to heal
But how far can your bruises legitimate your beatings?
The T-4 Program was an Euthanasia Program designed by the Nazi regime in 1939 to exterminate physically and/or mentally deficient children & adults during WWII. It marked the beginning of the use of Gas Chambers for systematic extermination. Tackling the subject of The Holocaust may be nothing new, between all the books, movies, articles, etc. it seems we've seen/heard it all. But the testimony of a member of your family directly involved, who makes you “relive” the dark moments of her youth, who tells you about how she saved her mother and others; can move you in a different way. Others, like her father weren't so lucky and never left the extermination camp. This is merely remembrance; a reality check against the negationist speeches out there. Never again.
