All started when Victor Kugler is at the office
And hears noise at the stairs 
open the door seeing a German uniform.

The train of death in between the silence of the landscape
 transporting human beings is leaving from the station.
The train of death is riding 
in between the country side 
carrying goods and prisoners of war
is 8 August 1944. 
The train doors are close 8 people are in.
Ana looks outside the train stop.
She became 15 and got presents at the behind 
house and that last page is dated 1 august 1944

The train is riding with Margot
The noise is loud in Amsterdam
The silence noise is loud in Germany,
home was Holland in 1934-1939,
and Zandvoort summertime with Mrs: Schneider
and at the Montessori school.

There is war and occupation 
then the capitulations and the law
that  was 
each Jew most wears a star.
That’s how Ana frank and her family 
Arrived in Holland
The collaborators members of the NBS the Dutch Nazi party 
had in 1941 this national socialist movement 100.000 members 
and 20.000 Dutch served the German army.
Against the Russian front at the oostfront
because the Nazis wanted every Jew out of Germany.

 In 27 January 1945 freed by the Russian
found but 7.650 people alive
Otto frank is one of them
And almost 6 million Jews were exterminated
Under the holocaust 
That means in Dutch: bran doffer, shoah (of sjoa) catastrophe, ramp
The winter of 1944/45.
