“THE HOLOCAUST”
BY
GOLDIE JACOBY

HISTORY’S DARKNESS
WE MUST NEVER FORGET,
THE KILLING, THE SLAUGHTER’
THE TORTURE TILL DEAD.

THE JEWS WERE ALL HERDED
INTO BOXCARS LIKE SHEEP,
THE VICTIMS WERE GASSED
AND PILED IN A HEAP.

MILLIONS WERE LOST,
WHILE PACKED IN THE TRAINS,
FROM HUNGER AND THIRST,
BROKEN HEARTS, SO MUCH PAIN.

MOTHERS AND CHILDREN
CRYING FOR FOOD,
BEGGING AND PLEADING
TO GIVE, NO ONE WOULD.

THEY PUT US IN CAMPS,
TO BEAT AND TO STARVE,
AND MARCH US TO DEATH;
OUR SOULS THEY WOULD CARVE.

TO END OUR EXISTANCE
THE GERMANS ALL TRIED,
THEY ALMOST SUCCEEDED,
NOT ALL OF US DIED.

THE NAZIS, SO EVIL,
THE WORLD LOOKING ON,
NO NATION WOULD HELP US,
WE STOOD ALL ALONE.

WHY? WE DID ASK
OF SCHOLARS SO WISE;
WHAT HAVE WE DONE
FOR HATE SO TO RISE?

WE ARE SURVIVORS!
WOMEN, CHILDREN, AND MEN.
WE MUST SHOUT TO THE WORLD
NEVER, NEVER, NEVER AGAIN!
