Favorite Quote:
“I exist not to be loved and admired, but to love and act. It is not the duty of those around me to love me. Rather, it is my duty to be concerned about the world, about man.” - Janusz Korczak


They run
Expecting a shower
They file in
One by one
Waiting for the water to run
But instead
Out comes gas
They drop
All dead
Laying there
Bodies dumped outside
In a big pit
Known as a mass grave
They jump out of cars
Run to a huge pit
And all of a sudden
They fall
Dead
They ran to their death
No one dared to interfere
They run
But not all escape the Holocaust
