Stein was there,
He saw it all.
Some German soldier,

Stein had said,
Shot the girl though the head,
Straight through,

Just because she was a Jew,
Just like you and me
And six million other souls

Who never made it through.
A mere child,
He claimed,

Didn’t know her name,
No more than nine or ten,
And they left her there

In the deep cold snow;
No one wanting to move
Or go or stay 

Or say a word or breathe,
Just hoping the damned soldier
Would turn away and leave.

The blood ran quickly
Into the white snow,
Drenched it a dark red.

No one spoke
Or moved
Or gave a sigh,

They’d seen too many deaths,
Seen too many die.
