At the Beginning

This was only the beginning
No food or drink
Day and night day and night
From stench to yelling
To silence again
From heat to anger to tears
We finally realized.
. Auschwitz
What is that stench?
Bodies being burned
People watching and not doing a thing
. Auschwitz.
The name did not ring a bell
. Auschwitz.
Was only the beginning
