The Children of Auschwitz

The Children of Auschwitz

A Poem by Alz Alz

The Children of Auschwitz

The children of Auschwitz didn’t play games like tag or duck-duck-goose,
They played a permanent game of hide and go seek, hiding to avoid the abuse.
The children of Auschwitz, these young Jewish children, feeling so helpless and lost,
They may die as soon as tomorrow, because eating nothing has a deadly cost.

Hide and go seek continues, as they are stripped from their parents and everything they own.
So many innocent children will die, thousands already unknown.

Even now in Auschwitz, not a bright blue, sunny day will ever exist,
But the souls of the lost will always remain, and forever more be missed.

An enthralling poem


Worthy of a second visit... You words are profoundly moving... deeply revealing the horror that impacted so many innocent children... Devastation and hopelessness are so clear through your words, like a dark shadow forever hovering... Brilliant and painful...

Well written piece, defining the horrors that may dwell in the soul of man. I feel you have in some way given these children a voice after so many years.

This definitely sent a poweful message. It's sad to think about, but you brought it to people's attention.
Good job.

This definately carries a powerful message, one that many people try to forget. I will never fully understand how people can be so... evil. Well written.

I remember learning about this in world history. it's really senseless and disgusting that people would even be treated like that.

I like poems with meaning, great job.

These words are moving and you wrote this simply, but well. I liked the feeling of sadness and sorrow that flowed through my mind as I read this, it was touching. Powerful piece, keep it up.

I went to Auschwitz in 1979. I'm Native American and I could feel the pain and death 35 years later. The Polish people won't go near it. They say they can hear the screams of people in the night. Poem was well written and told a story of one of human's most terrible deeds. A excellent poem.
