Return to a Concentration Camp

Fire brands the soul
shreds the heart
Rips the wounds
of time apart
Came there not
to share not
to quench the
stench of shame
But to proclaim
the never pain
so long subdued
Shout it out!
Scream it through!
the canyons of doubt
to the boundaries of time
Let the echoes resonate
that none should suffer
so harsh a fate

Return to a Concentration Camp

Artist's Description

Were it not for one sole survivor, I would not be here. Often what lead to the holocaust is oversimplified. In my own ancestry are those who caused, suffered and fought the holocaust. The wholesale labeling of any one group is a reflection of the very causes of the horrific times taht repeat themselves from Cambodia to Tibet, Stalin Russia to Nazi Germany. The loss of the individual to the group.
