Poem created by participants on the 2018 March of the Living
I am proud to be a Jew and that my children’s children will never forget the Holocaust
Love is worth dying for because passion lasts
It is truly amazing to see that out of such evil and pure darkness, the Jewish faith can survive and flourish
We are not victims, victimization is a mindset and it is our job as Jews to thrive and enjoy the nation that our ancestors never saw as a reality
Thank you Poland for the memories, the Jewish pride and the hard work to rebuild
To my lost brothers and sisters, you are with me forever and always
When you hear a witness, you become a witness
We are not just back, we’re back and better than ever
Our bond and resilience only grows stronger
A week of the highest highs and lowest lows reminding me of my Jewish community and family
We need to keep the flame of survival alive and continue to keep equality strong
Poland gave me a lifetime experience I will never forget
A time of loving and learning
I will never forget friends like these
Never ever ever again, we are the future and with our knowledge becomes everyone else’s knowledge
Jerusalem is our capital- It will be forever
I learned that the atrocities of the human spirit can lead to hope, and the importance of not being a bystander
We live to be free- that is how we honor G-d and those who were sacrificed on the altar of hate
I will take all this new information and treasure it forever
It is now our duty to tell their story
To pay respects to those innocents that perished and emphasize that this must never happen again
We have learned about the tip of the iceberg, but we all experienced everything beneath the surface
While I always tried my absolute best to be kind and compassionate to all who I come in contact with, this week in Poland reminded me of just how important it was to have that habit
The Jewish people will never forget the Holocaust because they will never forget
The children smiled and waved an the people said to us there is hope
To remember never to forget does not mean we are victims, we are survivors who build and carry on
Never again starts with the youth- and the youth are strong!
