“I never cried at the loss of my parents
I could never say Kaddish
I never understood their inconceivable death
I never grasped the inhumanity of their murderers
My parents are entombed in heaven
They share the grave with six million souls
Good people, simple people, prevented my death
Generous people took me in as their child
I have built a family, I love them, they love me
I will die. Then, surrounded by angels, I will say the Kaddish.
