THE FROZEN HEART
Why didn't you fight back? They ask. How did six million Jews allow themselves to be slaughtered? How did they go so easily into the abyss?
I don't feel angry. I don't expect them to understand. How could they? How can one understand what one has not experienced?
How do you fight men with heavy, German boots and hate in their hearts? Fight guns in the hands of men who easily slaughter babies and old, blind men? How do you fight fear?
We did fight back. And we died anyway.
But you knew. You watched and did nothing. You watched. we fought back. And we died anyway.
