You believed that you were the “superior race."
You believed they were the cause,
because they had a Jewish face.
You turned people against them,
and expanded hatred and mayhem.
Now here we are, remembering your victims,
and survivors are scarred beyond repair.

You believed they didn’t deserve to live.
You believed in genocide.
Never will anyone be forced to relive
the agony you forced into their lives.
Your harsh feelings stung them like needles and knives.
Now here we are with millions of lost friends,
and survivors are scarred beyond repair.

The pain you caused was terrible.
You killed because of religion.
The damage you caused was unbearable,
you could’ve stopped, and saved their cries.
You ripped apart friendship, and family ties,
because you believed you were right.
So many people joined your side.
And the survivors are scarred beyond repair.

Not only did you scar your own nation,
but you damaged others, too.
Polish children failed your “Germanization."
Remember the children?
You wouldn’t remember them, you killed them.
Now here we are, remembering the children,
and survivors are scarred beyond repair.

In Washington, D.C., lies a building with four floors.
This museum remembers and honors who you killed.
The elevator symbolizes being trapped between your doors.
People start at the last floor, to be their own guide,
and everywhere in the building, you hide.
Now here we are, beyond disappointed in you,
and survivors are scarred beyond repair.

There are exhibits from the yellow star,
to your propaganda.
Everything from the wooden bar,
that you called a concentration camp bunk,
to how Jewish self-confidence was sunk.
Why did you do that? Were you satisfied?
And now survivors are scarred beyond repair.

The author's comments:
I wrote this for a writing assignment based on a historic museum in Washington D.C. I picked the Holocaust, and I was very surprised at all of the events that happened during this time. Therefore, I chose this topic, and researched the Jewish religion and Hitler and the Nazis' ways.
