A short poem about The Holocaust
|Written for ~Minja~'s challenge: "Note: [Embed //www.youtube.com/watch?v=qIp_8RNNX4k]
Holocaust, Greek meaning "whole" "burnt,"
Or in Hebrew, Shoah, "The Catastrophe."
And that it was, though some say it weren't.
Two-thirds of Europe's Jews,
Six million Jews, plus five million more.
Others included those with different views
And homosexuals, the handicapped,
Jehovah's Witnesses, Freemasons,
Even Communists were trapped.
Over 200,000 perpetrators across
42,500 locations in Germany and beyond
For our world, this time was a terrible loss.
