The sirens begin to howl
Piercing our ears
They are frightened
And now we know it is coming,
their downfall is coming

Let them see suffering
Let them see the remains of their homes
Let them see their families killed
Let them see everything disappear
Then I will see them shout ‘Heil Hitler’

We gloat at their fear
But will I be so naive to trap myself in such?
We will suffer too
We will have to bear worse
But we will endure it all

We take our first step,
we walk to somewhere,
somewhere unknown,
Death or liberation?
I don’t know.
