Shoah
(inspired by the words of Helen Aronson, a Holocaust survivor)

If you weren't there,
try though you may,
you will never
really understand
what we went through.
No one can. 
No one should.

It doesn't matter.
You don't need to suffer
as we did.
It is enough
that you care;
that you treat
each other
as human beings.

    • Thanks. It is inspiring. The woman who spoke these paraphrased words, and the rest of a handful of fellow survivors had a truly remarkable attitude and view on life. They moved me to tears.

    • Thank you, Mr B. but I can’t really take the credit for this. All I have done is summarise her fine and inspiring words.
