Shoah ‹š› n. Jew.  (“catastrophe, calamity”)  – Term referred to the extermination of the Jewish people during the Second World War. [Treccani encyclopedia]

shoah

I was sick of people who lined up quietly, apologized to each other, obeyed the orders and went to die. The executions continued throughout the day. Jews in a row were conducted in the area behind the ravine . The ground became dark with Jew’s blood. The Nazis had understood something that the world took a long time to learn. The greater the crime was, the less people will believe it was committed. But I saw them committing it. I would have never been  the same again, neither Helena.

The chimney of the crematorium in Birkenau has been smoking for ten days. Room needs to be done for a huge transport coming from the ghetto of Posen. The youth tell to young people that all the elderly will be chosen. The healthy tell to the healthy that only the sick will be selected. Specialists will be excluded. German Jews will be excluded. “Small numbers” will be excluded. You will be chosen. I’ll be excluded.
