Ode to Poland, 2017

Poem created by participants on the 2017 March of the Living

Poland was a roller coaster of emotions
Eye opening

Paradigm shifting and revengeful

We’re still here

Life changing

My eyes and heart have been opened through an amazingly journey with incredible people

Connections that will last a lifetime
Experiences that have forever shaped us

It became real when I saw the scratches on the walls of the gas chambers

My family history

The human race is baffling

A life changing experience

The best revenge is a navy Porsche

Hollow

Life changing

Eye opening and insightful

United and empowering

We’re still living

A life changing experience

We triumphed

Polin here I rest. We rested for 800 years then our world was destroyed. We burn bright. We rise.

Poland is booming

My bucket list is great. Rypin #1

Beautiful country and cosmopolitan city

There is so much missing

I am a man of all weather

Eye opening experience that emphasizes the importance of being Jewish

Emotional and sobering

From sadness of the tragedies to proudness of being a Jew

Sad yet necessary. We will never forget
