Because I Am/Living During the Holocaust

May 22, 2008
By Ally Reel, Coatesville, PA

I am a Jew, so put me in a gas chamber.
Kill me now, as I have done no harm to anyone.

I am a Jew, put me in a concentration camp
Make me do meaningless work all day.

I am Jew, so take my family away from me.
Don't ever let me see them again for the rest of my life.
Tell me left, and them right.

I am a Jew, so shave my head as I cry.
Give me tattoos as I scream in pain.

Since I am a Jew, and I was born a Jew, I'm meant to live a horrible life in Germany with Nazi soldiers all around me.

Since you are human, help me.
