What Did I Do Wrong?


I was taken
They must have been mistaken
What did I do wrong?
They stripped me, beat me, starved me
What did I do wrong?
No name, I am a number, not a person
What did I do wrong?
We are burned, are gassed, are killed
What did I do wrong?
We are filthy, are nasty, are skinny
What did I do wrong?
Did I deserve this
Did we deserve this
Did anyone deserve this
What did I do wrong?
Will I ever be free, when can I leave
Will anyone grieve
What did I do wrong?
Should I fight, is it worth it, will I make it
What did I do wrong?
No one answers my question
We are beat, are starved, are killed
What did I do wrong?
The answer
I was born a Jew.
