"....och ordet var Folkmord"

Med anledning av
Förintelsens Minnesdag
27 januari 2010
av Don Barnard
In the beginning was the Word
and the word was Jew.
And the word said Other,
the word said Them.
Not Me, not You.
Then the ploughing of the minds
and the sowing of the lies
and the lies said Rapists
and the lies said Thieves
and the lies said Evil in disguise.
And the Word was Demonise.
Then the growing of the Weeds.
And the Weeds were Greed.
And the Weeds were Spite
and the Weeds were Schadenfreude
and folk passed by on the other side.
And the Word was Bleed.
Then the writing of the Laws.
And the Laws said Jews
are not as other men.
No loving of your neighbour.
No Jews as citizens.
And the Word was Cleanse.
Then the packing into trucks
and the tracks led east.
People carried like beasts
and harried like beasts
and herded like beasts into pens.
And the Word was Untermensch.
Then the Words became a sentence
and it sent them to their death
by burdening the strong,
who earned another breath
before they died, and murdering the rest,
who simply died.
And the Word was Genocide.
Ett memento till oss alla:
“There is no denying that Hitler and Stalin
are alive today...
they are waiting for us to forget,
because this is what makes possible
the resurrection of these two monsters.”
(Simon Wiesenthal)
