Poetry of the Holocaust 6.2.4
I've lived in the ghetto here more than a year,
In Terezín, in the black town now,
And when I remember my old home so dear,
I can love it more than I did, somehow.
Ah, home, home,
Why did they tear me away?
Here the weak die easy as a feather
And when they die, they die forever.
I'd like to go back home again,
It makes me think of sweet spring flowers.
Before, when I used to live at home,
It never seemed so dear and fair.
I remember now those golden days…
But maybe I'll be going there again soon.
People walk along the street,
You see at once on each you meet
That there's a ghetto here,
A place of evil and of fear.
There's little to eat and much to want,
Where bit by bit, it's horror to live.
But no one must give up!
The world turns and times change.
Yet we all hope the time will come
When we'll go home again.
Now I know how dear it is
And often I remember it.
This poem is preserved in manuscript, written in pencil on a sheet of lined paper torn from a
notebook. The date "9.III. 1943" is in the upper right corner. All other facts are missing.
by: Tammy Walters and Michelle Wright
Websites for articles:
First they came for the communists,
and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a communist.
Then they came for the socialists,
and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a socialist.
Then they came for the trade unionists,
and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a trade unionist.
Then they came for the Jews,
and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a Jew.
Then they came for the Catholics,
and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a Catholic.
Then they came for me,
and there was no one left to speak for me.

Possible ways to kill a vampire:
How do we know these things?
What PRIOR KNOWLEDGE
do you have about vampires?
What are the best ways
to kill a vampire?
How do we evaluate this prior knowledge for accuracy?
How do we know if
it is correct?
Robert Neville is the lone survivor of a vampire epidemic. He quickly discovers that the majority of his prior knowledge about vampires is inaccurate. His RESILIENT NATURE leads him on a quest for valid reasoning and sound evidence as he fights for survival in a changing world.
Richard Preston follows the involvement of the CDC along the trail of an Ebola outbreak within the U.S. As the virus mutates, researchers are forced to scrap the majority of their prior knowledge in their quest for an effective medical intervention against this "human slate wiper" of a virus. RESILIENCE in research becomes the only hope for the human species.
