Children Of The Holocaust

Children Of The Holocaust There are butterflies in heaven; With numbers tattooed on their arm. Dancing in the gentle breeze; Free from Hitler’s death farm. Little Jewish children; Who knew their lives would end; Carved butterflies in Auschwitz; Predicting their spirits would transcend. What could butterflies have ever done; To deserve such a cruel fate? For Nazi soldiers to kill them; Out of prejudice and hate. Such suffering for any child; Oh how my heart cries! For the smallest victims of holocaust; And beautiful butterflies. Darlene Doll Smith
