us that we felt like we were looking at God." ~Irene Safran What you don't know can't hurt, they say.
Did they know?
How awful, how hateful?
The ghettos, the camps, the chamber, the stars?
That made you feel, so different, so sad.
As if, you weren't human, anymore.
The lives taken, those spared,
Will be changed forever.
Those that saw and then, saw no more,
Those that saw again and again.
Those forced to leave,
Those forced to stay,
Those forced to be somewhere in the middle.
There was no way out, no escape.
Only to live,
Only to die. Irene and her sisters, Hermine and Blanche. ~Irene Safran Irene marrying her husband, Max Amann Nazi SS-Man Max was born on November 24, 1891. Max was declared Chairman of the German Nazi

were equally hurt. Elie and Irene were both punished
simply because they were Jewish. Elie went from a very religious boy to no longer believeing in God. Irene never stopped believing, she always believed there was always light at the end of the tunnel. Despite this, Elie and Irene both felt like their humanity had been taken. "I was a body.
