Until, after a long, long, time
I'd be well again,
Then I'd like to live
And go back home again.
--from a child's poem, Terezin Ghetto, found in 1945
In Memory of the children who perished in the Holocaust
Ronald Reagan quotation. "We who did not go their way owe them this: We must make sure that their deaths have posthumous meaning. We must make sure that from now until the end of days all humankind stares this evil in the face . . . and only then can we be sure that it will never rise again."
