Poem: Werner 

Theresienstadt, Auschwitz, Death March, Mauthausen
I survived four deaths
The camps might not have been built
If in the beginning
The good people had done something
Alas… had they spoken out
But the good people did nothing
They let them concentrate us
The good people did nothing
Were they really good?

—Demetrios Michael Houtrides (11 years old) (5th grade writing assignment, after hearing a Holocaust survivor’s story)
