FOR YOM HA’SHOAH

Come, take this giant leap with me

into the other world . . . the other place

where language fails and imagery defies,

denies man’s consciousness . . . and dies

upon the altar of insanity.

Come, take this giant leap with me

into the other world . . . the other place

and trace the eclipse of humanity . . .

where children burned while mankind stood by

and the universe has yet to learn why

. . . has yet to learn why.

 

By Sonia Weitz, a Holocaust survivor (Excerpted from I Promised I Would Tell)
