The HolocaustSitting here, I watch the guard patrol the fence like a wolf waiting to pounce on itsprey. The stench of burning flesh is in the air. I cant see anything past the barb wire inthe distance. I can only see soldiers in the main yard of the compound. To the right ofme, I spot a group of people who are lined up to go into a building covered withcamouflage.
The soldiers are yelling shnel, shnel as they herd the people into thebuilding like a group of cattle. In the back of this building I see a cloud of smoke risinginto the dark sky. Some people say that once the soldiers take you there, you never comeback. They say the smoke you see is not really smoke, it is the souls of the people thathave disappeared in there.
There are many people here that I have never seen before. They all look sodifferent. Some still have meat on their bones, some look like a rack of bones. Thesesoldiers do not feed us often. Only on certain days do they let us out of the permanentshelter that we are in. I feel like I have no energy, and I have not eaten in days.
I wonderif I will I ever live through this. This is what Jewish people and Gypsies had to go through in World War 2. Theywere persecuted by Hitlers army of Nazis. These people did not harm anyone, but Hitlerfelt they threatened the new Germany he was building.
Hitler blamed them for theeconomic hardship they were going through. Just because they were Jewish, they weresought out and put into concentration camps. These people were brought to these campsto be eliminated. If you did not meet the criteria for the New Germany, then you wouldbe eliminated. How can someone just forget about what happened back then? To me, that is noteasy to forget about. I think you must study past atrocities to understand our own times.
The world let it happen once, and that is enough. We should learn from our mistakes andapply that to the future. If we focus on what is going on now, and not learning what wenton in the Creative Writing
