Auschwitz - Lest We Forget ‘Arbeit macht frei’ It said on the entrance gates Of course work didn’t make them free It just postponed their fate Almost as big a lie As the holocaust Never happening at all Seventy years since the liberation The day the Soviet Army took control The remaining survivors return Their harrowing stories told Over a million gassed or shot or beaten, burned and starved to death Mainly Jews the hated race The housing estates of evil still remain In memory as bleak as ever Rose said she hates the sight of it But at least we can’t forget ‘How could they kill babies’ ‘How could they kill babies’ Zigi said with tears in his eyes He was ‘lucky’ and useful for work Unlike his family who didn’t survive The Nazi atrocities won’t be the last Since the Aushwitz outrage Countless millions more have lost their lives An ABC guide to genicide Africa, Bosnia, Cambodia To name but a few to pay the price Six red candles burning bright One for each million Jews who died How could they kill babies How could they tell such lies When will the world learn When will we respect another’s life?
