Holocaust

By Lissa Howe

It came swiftly to the Jews,
Swallowed by the hatred of Germans.
No where to run,
No where to hide,
They fled from the Germans.

One by one taken captive
Hundreds killed at a time,
Heartless,
Selfish,
Merciless Germans,
Killing babies,
Killing Kids,
Trying to kill the Jews,
Killing themselves is what they did,

Few survived the tragic event,
Those who remain are scarred,
Those horrid days of pain and suffering,
No more torture;
More love,

More freedom.
