My first entry for The Amazing 55 Word Story Contest.

                   Winter shuffles into Dachau beside thousands of Jews.
                   Ice shards left in its wake cut through thin soles, drawing blood.
                   One lucky man is proclaimed useful and pulled out of line.
                   Feeling blood between his toes, he prays for shoes.
                   He is soon rewarded with a mountain from which to choose.

                   His tears flow freely.
