Artist's Description

What these 2 gold squares say.
Solomom Kusiel & Fanny Kusiel
Hier Arbeitete ( Worked here) A horse butcher shop.
It tells the story of when they were born, taken to a concentration camp, and when they were killed.
You find these little squares all over Germany and a few here in my town.
So sadly comes the idea for the poem.

I walk these streets where Nazi walked not too long ago.
In my mind visions play disturbing I must say.
I hear the sound of marching boots as they roam the streets.
A chill crawls up my spine.
I see buildings standing in a row nothings changed in time.
These buildings filled with bullet holes, from a brutal war, are reminders of the hate.
I see these windows filled with light one time they all were black.
And deep within their dark rooms hid people who were Jews.
Children huddled with their mothers fathers full of fear.
Guns shots ring in the distance night, children scream and cry.
I see men and boys standing tall outside these walls of stone.
Guns and rifle’s in their hands faces hard as steel.
I see these vision’s as I look I turn and I am there.
Seventy years since the war but the vision is right now.
I see these visions in my mind disturbing as I walk.
I stand and face a home I know a place where Jews once lived.
And on the ground a golden square brings sad memories of this time.
It tells me who once lived here it tells a tale of fear.
It tells a tale of a soul who’s life came to an end.
I read this with sorrow I read this with confusion.
I ask my self a thousand times how could this ever be.
I see these men standing tall with words of hate this day.
I see these men dressed in grey the color says it all.
I see the dreams of a race its culture in this child.
And as I read that she was killed I feel a sudden loss.
A life so young swept away, why I ask myself.
I see the person that she was with laughter and a smile.
I see the dreams children have when they fall in love.
I see a person not a Jew a person full of life.
And now I see the fear in her as Nazis strike her down.
My mind a vessel full of love confused with my own thoughts.
I ask myself what’s reality when madness rules the world.
I see the fathers ripped away as gunshots fill the air.
Gun shots ring out in the night as blood pours on the streets.
Tiny ones with eyes on fire their tears stain the pools of blood.
Mothers screaming on their knees the sadness of it all.
I see these things as I walk with voices in my head.
I see the madness of it all its sadness still haunts me.
I see these buildings everyday these memories never leave.
Then I hear someone tell me…
go back to where your from.
Seventy year’s have come and gone new Nazis rule this land.
I see them marching here and there, their mission’s still the same.
And as I walk and look around their hate for me is clear.
I shake my head it’s sad to say…
They’ll never learn I fear.
