Ode to Poland, 2019

Poem created by participants on the 2019 March of the Living

Poland, I have hope for the Jewish people here

We need to remind the world of the Holocaust

Hopeful because of the youth

A journey through history with strangers and first- hand witnesses

After a week I have enriched my understanding of Jewish history specifically the Holocaust

This week in Poland has been very eye opening. It has shown how proud I am to be a Jew and how important it is to keep the religion going

Poland was informative and very depressing

Poland showed me how lucky I am

I feel when I leave this week I have a new family and I have so many memories

This trip has been so eye-opening so far, and I’m so glad to be a part of this new family

I’ve never been prouder to be a Jew. I will cherish my grandmother so much more after learning about her past

For me this trip was about being reflective and introspective

We are empowered, proud and united

I couldn’t be more honored to be a part of such an empowering group

I will no longer let my fears that haunted me keep me from being Jewish

I am grateful for the experience that I had, the stories I heard, the childhood, safety, freedom and liberty I’ve had and still have, the friends I’ve made, and the future that I have, all because they lost and we won and we continue to have this unique Jewish spirit of life and happiness.

I am so humbled to be a part of such an amazing community. I’m in awe of the power of my people

This trip had made me feel such warmth and power being a Jew

Poland was the place where bonds were made, tears were fallen, pride of being Jewish was set in our hearts and a family was formed

Never be silent to the atrocities and destruction of people because of their religion or beliefs

The experience in Poland was amazing and meaningful

This week we celebrated sorrow to joy
