Parrik tute, Thank you, Nais tu.


                                          We will never know their pain

 Body lay up on body, the smell of death in the air,

Pain and suffering, too much for humans to bear.

Family¿s torn apart, the strong to live and work,

the weak to face the chambers, god how they hurt.

Women stood in shame, their naked bodies filled with pain,

A shower was their promise; the gas was their gain,

Their prayers went unanswered, their cries went unheard,

Solders gave no mercy, hatred in their words,

Shouting out their orders, death was theirs to give,

Not even your childhood, gave you a right to live.

Baby¿s clung to mothers, until they breathe there last,

Their further was now other, yet they never lived a past.

Girls robbed of their honour, their bodies were abused,

Death was the only answer, to how they could refuse.

Ugliness was a blessing, for beauty brought them pain,

For there¿s worse than death and that is what they gained.

Their suffering is now just word¿s in a history book.

I say thanks to god that we will never no their pain,

For as a gypsy i know their life could have been mine to gain.
