Only following orders

Pushing corpses into the oven 
Living now my only thought
Survival keeping my uniform clean

I only did what I was told
Loading bodies of the dead 
Once bold soul now weak bought n sold

Only following orders

Sonderkommandos were work units of Nazi death camp prisoners, composed almost entirely of Jews, who were forced, on threat of their own deaths, to aid with the disposal of gas chamber.

    It's sickening! It's hard to put yourself in their shoes. May Jesus come soon to rid this world of such inhumanity.
