"I Once Was A Little Child..."

"I once was a little child who longed for other worlds,
but I am no more a child for I have known fear,
I have learned to hate, how tragic then is youth
which lives with enemies, with gallows ropes.
Yet, I still believe I only sleep today, that I’ll wake up,
a child again, and start to laugh and play.”

- Hama Herchenberg, 14 years old.
Died December 18, 1943, Auschwitz concentration camp.

Don't look away, this is what we have done, all of us...
